indyJEEP:  It’s most likely caused by a blood vessel.  I forgot the term for these, I googled – cherry angioma.  DH has one, usually you don’t need to worry about them much, but if it’s changing seeing your doctor won’t hurt.

Yes it looks like a Campbell De Morgan spot. But I would get it checked anyway as things can sometimes look different in photos. I’m a general practitioner in the UK.

It’s most likely a hemangioma from what you’re saying, but it could also be a port wine stain. If it’s remained around the same size from childhood, it is most likely a hemangioma, which is a benign tumor of the endothelium. They can either be more flat or a little raised. They can present either in childhood (though not usually at birth), or more commonly in your 30s and 40s. Usually as people get older, they notice either an increase in number or an enlargening of their spots. The port wine stain originates from skin capillaries. You’re usually born with it, and it grows in proportion to your body size as you get older.
