I have one very small 1-2 mm angiokeratoma

I have one very small 1-2 mm angiokeratoma and there is no pain but I am concerned that it might rupture unexpectedly and cause quite a mess. any suggestions ? FYI, I did puncture it once with a fine needle and it bled for 15 min profusely before clotting! Again, no pain but it is always in my mind. if it breaks during a business meeting, etc. it could be a major embarrasment to say the least. Is there any cream (vit e) or other method to help reduce, or strengthen the capillary ? Thank you!

Usually the course of treatment depends on the number and size of the lesions.Normally medicines dont have much effect.Surgical treatments popular are excision,laser,cryotherapy and grafting.You should consult a dermatologist.
