Self esteem issue due to body flaw.

I have moles EVERYWHERE. Different sizes, some raised some not. Every day there's a new one and I'm afraid by the time I'm 30 (i'm 26) that I'll covered in them head to toe. I have them all down my jawline on my left side. I refuse to take pictures on that side of my face and am so self concious about it. I've had kids come up and ask me all the time "What's on your face". It's awkward and embarassing. I have them all over my back and arms as well and two on my boobs. The only place they're not on is my stomach and legs/feet other than that they're everywhere. I even have one big one on the back of my head.

I know I can get them removed but it's expensive and Im not sure if insurance will cover it if it's not a health problem. At least the ones on my face and head anyway. It's something to look into.

Is there any way I can prevent them? Also will my kids get them this bad? My oldest already has two and she's six.  I am so sick of them and sick of DH making fun of them and the kids and their friends asking questions. It's making me just not want to leave the house.  

Pics that I have: 
All over my face, mostly small ones. You can't see the large on on my neck.
 

My face four years ago, you can see how I didn't have that many then:
 

And the one on my jawline...the most embarassing part that draws attention.

Does going in the sun for a long time bring them out?  I have red-haired, fair friends that when they're in the sun they get new freckles.  Sometimes it gets bad where the freckles all connect to each other lol.  But honestly, I don't see anything wrong.  It looks fine to me.  I've been getting more beauty marks on my arms.

I think you're beautiful :) if you aren't able to have them removed, u may as well embrace them because they aren't going anywhere. Luckily you have a killer smile and generally attractive face

You need to get to a dermatologist, now. I don't think its normal to get so many new ones. And yes, insurance will cover their removal, most of the time. Say out of the sun to prevent more, and use sunscreen every day. You are beautiful! You don't need to hide.

i have some and just dont pay them any mind. i know they have stuff for skin tags i dont think they do for moles. you could always have them cut off but that would leave worse scars i believe. you are gorgeous by the way and i wouldnt worry about them

It may not look like a lot in pictures but I have them covering my back and arms. I'm worried they'll cover my face more.

I avoid the sun like it's the devil. I burn BADLY. I take the kids to the pool but I'm clothed and in a shade as well as lathered in sunscreen.

As a teen i didn't notice them as much nor in my early twenties but since the kids and DH points them out often I have become more self aware.

tell him that him pointng them out bothers you and talk to him about it. he should be more respectful and help build your confidence instead of hurting it. he may not know it bothers you so much

Not to sound conceited but I've always thought I was pretty. Not gorgeous or anything but lately I just look at my face and all I see is moles screaming at me. I don't even take pictures of myself anymore :(
