Red spots on the upper legs spreading to stomach, no itching. What could it be?

I m getting these red hickey looking spots on my upper legs. Its on the outside of my upper legs and now some on my stomach . They started with two, one on each calf muscle on my legs..Now are on my upper legs and on my stomach. They do not itch , but look bad and do not appear to be going away. Sometimes they are lighter in color, and look to be going away, but do not.

Thanks for writing here.

Red spots without itching suggest cherry angiomas.

They are harmless and need not require any treatment.

Just stay relaxed .

At times they can be infected.

You need to apply antibiotic cream in that case .

Hope this will solve your problem.Take care.
