Dr. K. :

Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

They are in fact blood blisters and common as women get older

Dr. K. :

They are benign skin lesions and do not require treatment

Dr. K. :

Women who get them often develop multiple lesions over time, like freckles

Dr. K. :

While they can be removed, it leads to scarring and is not recommended.
