I'm sure others have them, but what are they? They're very small, and it's like a dot of bright red blood that is just right under the skin....the size of a dot from a pen.
What are these tiny red dots on my skin?
Does this look like what you have?

If so, it's a Petechia http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/petechiae/HQ01208
On a side note when I was pg with dd I got the petechia on my feet but the ob's didnt know what it was or why it happened and I never found out. Possibly had to do with my liver which was starting to go bad. I researched it after dd was born and I am 99.9% sure I had colestasis (horrible itching with no visible rash like PUPPS) It hit at the end of my 7th month and disappeared within a week.

CuriousHey there! I was searching on here for the same condition and came across the picture on google images. I have been trying to find out what it is for awhile. My mother has them too, which she has had for years but doesn't know what it is as well. I have had the ones on my arms, hands, and a few inside my palms since I was a kid. Now this past year I have found 2 on my right leg, 1 on my left leg and 1 on my left foot. Also a couple on my chest. Just wanted to see if you found out what they were. I know it's Petechia because all the pictures I have seen and things I have read about it doesn't really match the same thing. Like before, it says serious medical problems could be possible but my mom is healthy too. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks..
If it's the cherry hemangioma, it won't go away, but it will get bigger as one ages. I've had one on my stomach since I was a child, and it has gradually gotten a little bit bigger over the years and I now have several more smaller ones. Take your daughter to a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon for an evaluation.
