Re: HELP? Red itchy freckles

okay after looking around the internet i am kinda thinking it may be petechiae. But it sounds like some of the causes of this are serious. I feel quite healthy. One of the causes seems kinda mild, minor injury or trauma. does anyone thing that sunburn qualifies as trauma or injury...

Sunburn definitely qualifies as an injury though I'm not sure if it'd be serious enough to cause this petechiae that you are talking about. I guess it depends on how serious the sunburn was. Did you get burned pretty bad? That said, your problem is probably the sunburn. Get some aloe vera with lidocaine in it and smooth that on wherever it itches or hurts. It can't hurt anyth9ing and should help. Oh and I am not a doctor so if your symptoms persist or are extremely bothersome, you should see a doctor.

Re: HELP? Red itchy freckles

I have the same exact thing. I have large patches of these all over my legs. They are bright red and don't fade when pressed on. On my lower legs...they are just tiny red dots, but on my upper legs they are quite large. It looks like blood under the skin. I also had gotten a little bit of a sunburn over the I'm wondering if this is the cause?
