BTD Forums  /  The Encyclopedia/ D'Adamo Library  /  thousands of little red moles
Posted by: D.L., Saturday, April 28, 2012, 10:41pm
Since there are people posting here from all over the world, I wonder if anyone else has this. My dad is half Swedish and half German. Dad, my younger sister, and I have little red moles all over our body. We are very light skinned. I have thousands of them, mostly on my chest, stomach, and arms, a few on my upper legs. Most are tiny, pin-prick size. The largest one, on my stomach, is the size of the head of a pencil eraser. Looks like it is full of blood. A few are a little smaller. My mother, who is not Swedish, did not have them. I have had them as far back as I can remember, but I seem to be getting more pin-prick size as I get older. One doctor, a long time ago, said it might be from a virus, but didn't know. If it was from a virus, why didn't my mom and brother get it? I think Dad is a different blood type than me. Any clues?

I have been trying to figure this out too!  I have read that it could be caused by a clogged liver.  I have many of these as well and they started appearing when I was pregnant with my second child 7 years ago.  I was not following the BTD diet then (just started 3 years ago). By the way, I am at least half German, but I don't know that ethnicity plays a significant role in delveloping them.

Lola is correct, these are tiny hemangiomas.

Are these actually raised like moles, or flat like freckles?  I used to have lots of little pinhead-sized red freckles on my upper arms, but they have gone away since going on the BTD.  Going back to my grandparents (by family name), I am 1/2 Irish, 1/4 English, and 1/4 German.

I guess if yours are raised like moles my comment wouldn't quite be relevant...

I am german raised in Brazil and I got this red moles mostly in my upper body and in the last years (before I did not have them). Maybe it comes with the age  (I am 51) or the kind of diet. I stopped a year ago with wheat... (unfortunately I was asked to make some cupcakes and tried the rs rs). My father-in-law had those too. My husband has some too. But my Mom did not have those (with 84)! I do believe is food related! Regards

Shortly after starting on a 3 week, sugar-free purge and a reccomended supplement plan by a local naturapath (sp?) [about 1 year before starting the BTD in 1996], I began to get these slightly raised pin sized spots all over.  At a subsequent visit to the naturapath, she told me that was cast offs from my liver as it was "cleaning house".

They have never given me any trouble.  I have noticed that, as I have gone from the BTD, to the GT, and now the SWAMI, the dots have increased.

I have had them since a child. The tiny ones are flat, but the bigger ones are raised. Same with my Dad. That's why I was wondering if I had inherited the tendency. The only one that bothers me occasionally is where certain shirt seams rub it, then it itches. My arms look like I took a sharp red pencil and began dotting tiny red pin-prick marks all up and down. I have a noticeable one on my forehead, under my bangs, also. None on lower legs. None on neck. But everywhere else.

TJ -My mom was Irish, German, English, Dutch, and Castillion Spanish. She didn't have any. Dad is German and Swedish. He has lots of the little red things, big and small.
I just had another blood test a few weeks ago. My liver is fine. My blood counts are fine. Everything is fine except my cholesterol and triglycerides. They don't seem to be near/on any veins. Just randomly everywhere.
Dr. D and Lola - I will look up cherry angioman/hemangiomas.

I googled cherry angiomas and got some links with information. So, now I know. Thank you so much. Before I posted here, I didn't even know what to look up. And a couple links did say that even though they don't know for certain what causes them, they think the tendency is inherited.
