Noticing werid marks

I have been noticing weird marks on my arms and 1 on my right breast. They are small red pin point dots on the skin. They do not pop up they are flat they don't itch and they don't hurt but they appear for no reason. ???

Re: Noticing werid marks

i have them too....about 5 ofem. It kinda looks like someone poked you with a needle? The dermo said they were okay as long as you dont have a LOT of them...the ones i get take years to go away

I have those all over. Should I be worried? I just thought it wa from dry skin. What did your dermatologist say they were?

Re: Noticing werid marks

its called petechiae.....
People get them from time to time from many many minor things like injury, aging, giving birth, vommiting, coughing too hard, meds, allergies...etc
But if you get a significant amount, it can be a sign of something a lot more serious such as things like bone marrow, blood, immune system, and liver disorders or a deadly internal infection.
Because i asked my dermo when i was little, he told me mine were most likely from lack of vitamins from my diet.....most likely C or K.

I get them too and my doctor said it was because I'm anemic.

Re: Noticing werid marks

OneWayOut,

Thank you for responding. I've never had mine checked because I didn't think it was anything bad. Now I hope it's nothing bad. I do lack vitamins from not being able to take them from having colitis. For some reason, it gives me a flare-up. I will have to look into a natural form.

Again, thanks for the info. I will have to talk to my doctor about it.

Chantel
