I have what I think is Petechiae on my arms and chest. They are really really tiny red dots. I had a complete blood count w/ differential done and everything came back absolutely normal. Is it possible to have Petechiae and not have a problem? My arm is sprinkled with them but they are not a rash and I also have 2 or 3 cherry angiomas. Is this possibly a skin condition? I have scheduled an appointment with a dermatologist but it is not until two weeks from now. Is anyone experiencing a similar condition?

Re: Petechiae


I have petechiae,sometimes its benign and appears with age.Also this can be associated with autoimmune diseases.I have ms,this appeared during an attack 8 months ago and then it disappeared and it has returned,I will see my GP on Monday to have him access it.Mine could be from an annoying itch I get,no reason not even a rash,it could be caused by me itching the area and causing it myself.
