Tiny Red Spots

Hi everyone.....trying not to sound like a hypochondriac here, but I noticed this morning I have these very small, red spots ( not bumps) on my chest, thighs and lower stomach. Almost pin-point in size. I've seen these before and they usually go away but ....just wondering if anyone has any idea about them?

I did a search and 1 site said they are common and nothing to worry about; another site says this is the one type of rash you SHOULD worry about......very confusing!

Thanks,

Lisa

Lisa:

It's possible that they are petechiae, which is commonly due to low platelets. Have you had a CBC lately?

Re: Tiny Red Spots

Hi Shelby...thanks for your response. No, I haven't had a CBC lately...is it something I should be concerned about? They have gone away now which is what usually happens.

Thanks,

Lisa

Re: Tiny Red Spots

The next time they appear, ask your doctor for a CBC. It could be something to be concerned about. Have you had any weird bruises or bleeding?

Re: Tiny Red Spots

I find bruises often and never know how they appear....usually takes awhile for them to heal also.....
