... Basically, red spot under the skin (not outside) is minor bleeding in your skin (petechiae). It could happen from Leukemia because of low platelets.

Petechiae?!
May 22, 2016
... Those little red dots can be caused by low platelets which has many causes. The red dots can also be caused by inflamitory processes. I got them from a kind of vasculitus. I'd get them on my arms from shopping bags. I've also had things that looked the same but we more like mini hives. Yes get a blood test. & take pics when it's bad. (5 replies)

Petechiae?!
Feb 18, 2016
... My advice? If you're really anxious about it, try to demand a CBC (blood panel) to give you peace of mind. Find a new doctor if yours won't do it, but it's a pretty common test I think. They take a couple viles of blood and send it off to a lab check for a bunch of things... platelet, red & white blood cell counts and so on. I'm no doctor, but you probably have nothing to...

Petechiae?!
Jan 3, 2016
... I have been worrying my absolute head off because of these tiny, pinprick red spots on my arms. They only appear on my arms and very little amount everywhere else. If you look at my arms, you wouldn't see them unless you really looked for them. I don't have them on my face. I don't have any of the purpura or anything else. Neither do I have any bruises or any bone pain. But... (5 replies)

... You consume copious amounts of garlic, a known blood thinner, and get petechiae. You then go on a 5 hour hike up a mountain and feel winded. Then you did some exercise and got a headache. :eek: Is this some kind of joke? Paranoid? Yes. Leukemia? No. Excuse me while I go chop a finger off with the axe, and then go ask a web health forum if they think I might have... (2 replies)
