tiny red dots on upper arms

Hi, Can anyone tell me if they have what I have and know what it is or how to get rid of them. I have a bunch of tiny red dots/spots on my upper arms. They are not raised, they're under the skin and you can't feel them. It's not keritosis pilaris because those are raised bumps.They don't itch or anything they are just there. I don't have them anywhere else on my body. I've had them for as long as I can remember and my dad, brother and sister have them too. Thank you

Welcome to the forum. I have no idea,but they must not be dangerous or you would know it from your family. I have not heard of anything like that in the PH area,but you never know.

Good luck in your search for an answer.

Do you have CREST? CREST is a cause of PH, and one of the symptoms of CREST are little red dots called telangiectasias.
