Brief Answer:
Seems to be cherry angiomas, no need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have reviewed the attached photograph though it is not very clear.
It seems to be cherry angioma which is a benign vascular tumour of the skin.
They are common in middle aged and elderly persons.
They are harmless and no need to worry.
You can leave them as such or get them removed by electrocautery or laser treatment.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
