Lobular capillary hemangioma
Pyogenic granulomas are small, reddish bumps on the skin that bleed easily due to an abnormally high number of blood vessels.
The exact cause of pyogenic granulomas is unknown, but they often appear following injury. They typically occur on the hands, arms, or face.
Pyogenic granulomas are common in children.
