Brief Answer:
Angioma

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have viewed the image and gone through your query.

It seems like a spider angioma or a cherry angioma. It is a collection of small blood vessels. I would suggest a laser for it which would vaporize or burn off the vessels.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance
