Hi, folks. I have been reading this thread with some interest. I have a few odd on spots on my body and some fairly small ones on my face (at the corners of my nose). These are not uncommon in the general population of people without scleroderma. Telangietasias are superficial dilated blood vessels. If you look at the spots under a good magnifying glass, you can sometimes see the individual capillaries or a bundle of them. It is primarily the ones on the face and hands that are used in the diagnosis of the T part of the CREST syndrome. You may find it interesting to read our Telangiectasia page which includes links to quite a few patient stories.

Warm wishes,
