Re: tiny red blood circle,pin size points.
Sounds like you have lyme disease with those symptoms!
Exposure + the rash + the clinical symptoms?
Find a lyme-literate doctor immediately!
Those spots: they are called petechiae or cherry angiomas.
Mine, unlike yours, have not vanished, so maybe it's not the same thing.
The appearance of my spots each time was preceded by a "twisting pain" --
is the only way to describe it.
I have them on my torso mostly. One on my leg.
It's cause is the Bb infection--
the spirochete in my case, evidently moving through the tissue.
I do not have an auto-immune (arthritic) strain of Lyme.
However, have developed Hashimoto's with the infection.
Definition from Mayo below.
But note: I personally do not have a low platelet count as indicated in this description.
They can add, and maybe will someday, "tickborne diseases" to this list.
Petechiae are pinpoint-sized red dots under the surface of the skin.
The dots are red because they contain blood that has leaked from tiny blood vessels (capillaries) into the skin. Petechiae may be an indication of a serious underlying problem that requires medical evaluation.
A common cause of petechiae is a low platelet count (thrombocytopenia). Platelets are blood cells that play an important role in blood clotting.
Causes of a low platelet count include:
Autoimmune disorders, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis
Viral infections, such as mononucleosis and measles (rubella)
Side effect of certain medications, such as chemotherapy drugs
Bone marrow disorders, such as leukemia
Infection of your bloodstream (septicemia, or "blood poisoning")
