Red freckle or mole like things


Recently people have been chatting about finding small spots on their skin that look like little red freckles or moles.  I have them, too, so I thought I’d show a picture of what they look like.  I kept my fingers in the picture so you could tell how big these are.  I have a few that are more like mole size (a bit bigger than a freckle and raised up).

I’ve had a doctor say they aren’t anything to consider being problematic.  I’ve heard others say this is a Babesia thing and yet others who have said it’s a Bartonella thing.  Gah!  I hate all of the guessing we all have to do.

    A non-HMO M.D. (a doctor who wants to heal people not abide by insurance company rules) told me that the red bumps are due to a deficiency in Vitamin B-something. Since the B vitamins are often packaged together (probably for good reason), might be sufficient to just take a V-B supplement (or a stronger one if already taking Bs). Even better to eat more brown rice (whole grain with germ and bran), black-strap molasses, and other rich sources of V-Bs and to avoid junky food that reduces the absorption of nutrients or requires them for processing of the junk.
    Hope this helps.

    That looks like Cherry Angioma. They are caused by bromine toxicity. I don’t think you can get rid of them, but you can detox the bromides by taking iodine.

    I have been googling \what can cause many cherry anginomas to develop in a short time frame\ for months! Your post came up… And I am glad to connect with some one that has also been experiencing this. I have just recently been tested for lyme and was positive for borrelia berg, how ever I was negative for babesia and bartenella. I just found this listing on Dr.Hindmans Lyme page down under the Babesia symptoms, it says Cherry angenomas! I also have spider veins appearing every where…even on my chest and torso. I did read a while back a mother posting on one of the Morgellon/lyme feeds…asking about both…she said her two young daughters were exhibiting these and that the doctor told her it was aging…but the girls were 12 and 14. I believe it is a symptom of the lyme or co infectiosn, but not enough attention, or patents have not connected it or pointed it out to doctors. It needs to be addressed so that they can research the manifestation of this symptom .
