Cherry angiomas

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
According to your complaints it seems to be cherry angiomas which are benign vascular growths which tend to increase in number with age.
Still I would recommend you to upload the pictures of the affected areas under the report section of the site so that I can confirm the diagnosis.
