Campbell De Morgan or blood spots are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin. They are dome shaped or slightly raised. Blood spots are commonly found on the midriff front or back. Most people over the age of 30 have at least one blood spot or Campbell de Morgan Spot. They all start out as tiny pin-prick in size, but often continue to grow and can become quite raised and noticeable.

These are easily treated using diathermy which is a heat based treatment via a small probe that cauterises the blood spot which will then either scab and slough off or disappear immediately depending on the size.

The bright red or purple colour appearance of blood spots or Campbell de Morgan Spots is the result of tiny capillaries at the skin’s surface clustering together and dilating. They are not harmful in any way, and are considered a benign skin growth . Blood spots are not painful, but some are prone to bleeding when scratched or bruised. People may want them removed simply because they find them annoying or unsightly. From a purely medical perspective they don’t require removal unless they’re prone to frequent bleeding.

In some cases blood spots do enlarge past their normal size mentioned. In these cases, if you notice growth of a blood spot it may be a good idea to have it removed. Sometimes doctors may perform a biopsy just to be certain that the spot is indeed a harmless angioma. This is often unnecessary since they are well recognized by the medical community. Larger Campbell de Morgan Spots may require a second treatment a few weeks after the first. For this reason alone is it better to get them treated whilst they are small, quickly and easily treated.  Blood spots develop as we age

 What causes Blood Spots?

It’s not really known what causes Campbell de Morgan Spots, though it is believed they simply represent one of the ageing factors of our skin. They occur equally in both men and women, and tend to occur more often as we age. Some people seem more prone to getting blood Spots than others, suggesting that certain skin types or population groups may be more prone to them.  Fortunately, to most people Campbell de Morgan Spots do not pose any harmful threat. Blood spots do not indicate skin cancer, and they usually don’t require any type of treatment. However, as with any skin growth, if you are concerned then you should definitely have them examined to rule out more harmful skin conditions.
