Cherry Angioma is known as cherry hemangioma which is a small bright red color dome shaped bump on the skin. This is due to abnormal proliferation of the blood vessels and has no relationship to cancer. Blood vessels are the components of the circulatory system which transports blood throughout the human body. They help to transport the blood cells, nutrients and oxygen to the whole tissue of the body. Blood vessels are needed for sustain of life as all body functions rely on these functions. There are three types of blood vessels: Arteries- they carry blood from your heart, veins carry blood towards the heart, Capillaries are the smallest blood vessels which further connect arteries and veins. The main function of blood vessels is to deliver the blood to the whole organs and tissues, and also carry waste products carbon dioxide away from organs and tissues. The main artery is the aorta, which connects the left side of the heart, it usually runs down the chest, abdomen and to various branches in the area. The main vein is vena cava, It carries blood from head, neck and arms and inferior vena cava is present near the right side of the diaphragm. They are tube-like shapes which run in the straight line. Blood vessels are made up of three layers- Tunica Intima, Tunica Media, Tunica adventitia. In humans, the number and functions are affected by various diseases and conditions such as- Inflammation, atherosclerosis which involves the deposition of fat and causes abnormal increase in the blood pressure. In this topic we are going to study in detail about its causes, symptoms and its ayurvedic aspect and various remedies provided by planet ayurveda.

As per ayurveda cherry angioma is due to aggravation of pitta and rakta dushti. Rakta dhatu is more than blood, is the carrier of the fire which freshens up the mind and body. When rakta dhatu is in excess, heat in the body increases and tissues of the body feel inflammation. When rakta dhatu is deficient the heat of the body decreases and tissue becomes inflamed, when heat builds up in the body, moves through vasodilation to the blood surface. When blood tissue is contaminated by various doshas and aam it causes many diseases, and contamination of pitta and blood in blood vitiated disorders are seen. As blood and rakta have ashraya ashraya relationship. Due to blood and pitta vitiation skin loses its immunity and causes excessive congestion and inflammation and gives rise to pigmented disorders. When there is contamination in ranjaka and bhrajaka pitta the mols, freckles and other skin disorders are mostly seen.
