Sorry, issues with uploading pics. It's just a red small dot on the skin on the top side of my left wrist which seems to be painted on with a marker. No pain, itching or discomfort. It's like the brown 'age' spots that started appearing on my arms. Hope this helps.

Brief Answer:
Harmless skin lesions,cherry angiomas

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

You seem to have developed cherry angiomas or de XXXXXXX spots .
Now these are benign skin lesions which are reddish pink in color.
These are essentially harmless skin lesions and can be left on their own in most cases.
Only when they cause significant cosmetic concerns ,then they can be removed by either radio frequency or laser ablation .

Hope it helps
