I also have telangiectasia covering my trunk and the palm of my hands.
There is no adequate treatment, and relatively little is known about their cause.
Laser therapy can be used as a temporary removal measure, however, the red dots will eventually re-apppear, on a patient specific basis.
The red dots are more unsightly, as opposed to being painful. However, telangiectasia can lead to internal bleeding, and so, they can not be underestimated as to their seriousness.
Some scleroderma patients will not present with any telangiectasia symptoms.

|James Carver, myself, Prof Chris Denton|
I had the pleasure of being a presenter and part of the European co-hort who gave a presentation at the European Parliament, Brussels, in honour of World Scleroderma Day 2015.
I am immensely grateful to James Carver, former MEP, for organizing this event in memory of his late wife Carmen, who sadly passed from Scleroderma.
