White Spots on Skin With Red Dots in the Middle

Question: I've noticed these white spots all over my arms about the size of a dime with a tiny red dot in the middle. they look like they're bleeding,but they're not..I'm very fair skinned and pale. I haven't been tanning in awhile. (since last summer)..These spots do not itch or irritate me at all. I have no idea what they are? should I see a doctor? I get cold really easily..my skin turns purple also. If that helps.. My family has a big history of skin cancer in it. Thanks for your time.
Answer:

Unfortunately issues or concerns such as this cannot be diagnosed via the Internet. It sounds as if these lesions may be keratosis pilaris, but unfortunately I cannot actually determine that. I suggest you seek consultation from a physician in your local area for a proper diagnosis and treatment options.Best skin care wishes.Meagan, Esthetician
