I know i have to go to a dermatologist but i was hoping maybe one of you could help me in the meanwhile. I have these red markings on my face that have appeared over the years or just gotten worse. I dont know what they are and they do not hurt. I got a bit worried since dh asked about them yesterday, he's never mentioned them before.

this is the newest one on my right eyelid

on nose and under eye

and this one is by my hairline, it didnt look like this before. it started out looking like a pimple.  next to my thumb for size reference

The one on your hairline looks like a mole. The others on our face look like these other things (hemo-something, I forgot), which are harmless.

These, not harmful but if you don't like their appearance you can have them cauterized off. SIL had a big one on her nose and now you can't even know it was there.
