Common skin lesions and blemishes


Rosacea is a common yet complex skin condition that can appear, among other things, as permanent redness, sensitivity and broken blood vessels.

Skin tags

Skin tags are tiny bits of extra skin that can be found on any part of the body, but are most common on the eyelids and neck, in the armpits and groin and under the breasts.

Although skin tags are benign they can be annoying – especially if they catch on clothing or jewellery or interfere with shaving – but they can also detract from your appearance and self-image.

Spider naevi

Spider naevi have a small (1mm) central dilated vessel, with numerous tiny blood vessels radiating from it, that resemble the legs of spiders.

They are common in women, particularly during pregnancy and when taking the contraceptive pill. They typically occur on the face, neck, upper trunk and arms.

Blood spots or Campbell de Morgan spots

Campbell de Morgan Spots are benign, proliferations of blood vessels that result in small, cherry-red spots up to about 5mm in diameter. They are usually multiple and most commonly occur on the trunk.

Milia (milk spots)

Milia are small, white spots that usually appear around the eyes (and eyelids), on the cheeks, nose and chin. They are keratin-filled cysts and commonly associated with newborn babies, but can appear in people of all ages.

Seborrhoeic keratoses

Seborrhoeic keratoses are raised, crusty pigmented lesions that usually occur on the face and trunk. Some people start to develop seborrhoeic keratoses in their thirties, and most people have at least a few by the time they are sixty.

Like skin tags they are normally just a nuisance – they can rub on clothing, and their appearance can be distressing because they can interfere with choice of clothing, sports such as swimming, and intimacy.
