Dr. Can you please help.

Hello Doctor, I wrote to you a while ago about some rashes that i was getting, The rashes would come on and they would always leave the same day they came on, like most recently the last 3 times that i have been golfing when i get home i have a rash all on my stomach and chest but it goes away the same day, Thats everytime i am golfing or in the sun for a long time. Any reason? Also, the last week i have been itching really bad on my body and everytime a scrath i notice a little pimple sort of where it itches, maybe its a bug bite but they its like crayz, so bad that i scratch and rub myself so hard that i created some bruises where i have been scrathing and rubbing. Also, my next question is probably the one i am most worried about. How can you tell the difference between cherry angioma or some other angioma and petechia from a blood disorder? I have about 10 maybe tiny little red dots and i always though they were just little red moles, I can run my fingers on them and kind of fell them so they are raised just a tiny it. I have had them for years or as long as i can remember. Would petechia from a blood disorder come in a form of a rash or tones of the dots everywhere or can they be just a few dots here and there like i have. Like i said i have had them for years and i am in perfect health i play basketball all the time and i excersise. I have an appointment with a dermatologist on friday and i am scared to death that he is gonna say that they are petechia from a blood disorder. If they were indeed from a blood disorder wouldnt i be pretty sick by now since i have had them for as long as i can remember. (years) thank You.

If you've had these red spots for a long time, they must be angiomas.  Petechiae from a blood disorder would spread rapidly, and you'd be pretty sick by now.  Show the spots to a doctor next time you go, so you'll be sure.

I don;t really have much to say about the rashes that come and go the same day.  If they do, they can't amount to very much.

I guess they're OK, but are the Suns really the best?

Take care.

You know that the suns are the best. Thanks for the reply you have helped greatly, I have had the spots for ever so without a doubt they are angiomas. Thanks for your reply

Dr. Rockoff,
I've been pretty patient and don't mind if you totally disregard my question.  I was hoping to get an answer by now after you've answered many other people, but, don't bother.
