Suggest treatment for hives and allergy

My daughter has 2 small bright red dots on her index finger they have been there for years. Lately they seem to be a little bigger and defiantly brighter. She recently just had a allergic reaction to something were not sure to what though possibly red dye, but I was wondering if her having a bad case of hives from the allergy could have made the dots brighter or what the dots could be ?

Hello,

Thank you for asking at HCM.

I went through your daughter's history and would like to make suggestions for you as follows:

From your history, I would like to say that those 2 small red dots on index fingers are not related to allergies. It may be coincidental that they seemed to be enlarged during allergic reaction. Possibly they can be some vascular malformations.

Hope above information will be helpful to you.

Thank you & Regards.
