What could be the red blood filled spot on my forehead ?

I have had a red spot on my forehead for some years now. It looks like a thread vein but isn t a line just a spot in shape. I think it developed after a mosquito bite but can t be sure. I don t know what it is and would really like to get rid of it due to the location of it.

I had a rash in my hair line in middle of forehead. Went to dermatologist and she really didn t know what it is. She game me a steroid shot and cream. The rash and redness is almost gone but the itch is awful. Got the shot four days ago. The itching is driving me crazy. I go back on Feb. 24, 2016. Any idea what it could be. Started out looking like broken blood vessels. Thanks! The spot is about the size of a quarter. I have some pin head size red spots as well. My entire forehead is itching now.

Hi Doc I ve had a red spot on my forhead for some years. I would say at least 4 years. It seemd to appear after one summer. The only thing differnet about this summer was I drove a car with a sun roof. Could this be sun damage. I have tried everything over the counter nothing takes away the redness. Its not iching, it really doen t bother me at all, Its just a cosmetic issue. Im pretty sure its blood under the skin, the redness only goes away if i apply pressure to it.

Hello, I have red spots(look like broken blood vessels) on my forehead that have been there for months. I have had this before and I had a doctor remove it with a laser. My question is, what is this? How am I getting this? The first time I had it was when I was 10 , again when I was 20 and now for a 3rd time right after i turned 30. The red spots are always in the same area on the left side of my forehead. Any ideas?
