    Default Red spot not going away

    DD 2years has a red spot in her face, it's been there for 4 months now.
    At first it's like a little pimple/heat rash look spot. I thought it would go away like all her other spots.
    But this one is still there and it's now flat, and around it looks like red veins spreading out (been like that for months now).
    Should I be worried?
    Tried taking photos but doesn't show the details of the veins.

    I wouldn't be concerned but I'd think it would be worth a visit to the GP just to have it checked out.

    Are you able to upload a photo regardless please.

    I have three things in mind that it could be:

    Pyogenic Granuloma

    Haemangioma

    Spider Nevus

    Is it growing at all OP?

    My dd had what the Doctors thought was a Haemangioma when she was around the same age, as it started as a red dot, but as time went on it started to get bigger and bigger to the size of a pea. Unfortunately she knocked it in her sleep and because it had a large number of blood vessels, she has to be taken to Hospital as the bleeding couldn't be controlled. It was also on her face and was smooth.

    It turns out it was a Pyogenic Granuloma and she had to have to surgically removed in the end.

    Definitely take her to the Doctor to see what it is, and especially if it's grown or changed.

    Now I am worried
    I googled all 3 you have mentioned and it looked more like a spider Nevus.
    We will be seeing a doctor tomorrow. I hope nothing's wrong.
    The red dot in the middle hasn't changed in size but the veins around it seems to be spreading.
    I will try to upload a photo

    Oh Tubster, please don't worry, I know it's easier said then done, and I didn't meant to worry or alarm you, but just wanted to give my thoughts having been through something similar (seeing a red dot on my 2 year old's face).

    I have had a few spider nevus throughout the years on my body and they're harmless, sometimes unsightly, depending where they are, but nothing to worry about. As for the other two things, again, both are 'fixable' if it is that.

    Please try not to stress until you see the Doctor tomorrow, as who knows, it may be nothing more than a stork mark or something, but like anything it is always better to err on the side of caution and get things checked out. it is nothing!
