Do I have cherry agnimoas?

Patient

Q: I have these super tiny red dots on my skin. I already learned about petechiae and I am 97% sure i don't have it. My mother and father have a larger amount of these dots and like me, some blanch a lot some fade just a bit when scratched, pressed or rubbed. I know that is a good sign, though. They are also a bit itchy at times. I have maybe 35 on one arm and 25 on the other. They do not spread and are sprinkled randomly, not grouped together. I heard they can be from the sun or from stress, both I have been exposed to. I also read about cherry agniomas. Is this what I have?
