Campbell de Morgan Spots
Campbell de Morgan spots arise from blood vessels within the surface of the skin. They are most often bright red and are initially flat, but over the course of time may become raised and cherry-like. They are most commonly found on the trunk but may arise on any body surface. They are often multiple and their numbers increase from the age of 40. They are also known as cherry angiomas.
Fortunately, Campbell de Morgan Spots are entirely benign. Many people become concerned about their appearance as they are often so brightly coloured and may appear cosmetically unsightly. Just occasionally, they may become raised enough to become a nuisance when they can catch in clothing or jewellery causing bleeding.
At Enhanced Skin Clinics we are able to easily remove these lesions with electro-surgery and curettage or IPL giving excellent cosmetic results.
