Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The small pinhead sized red scabs that you have seen might not be related to melanoma. You need to monitor these rashes for any change in size, shape, pigmentation and ulceration. In case of changes, do consult a dermatologist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL http://bit.ly/Dr-Rakhi-Tayal
