I have very small bruise-like purple and red spots over an area of my leg. Not painful, itchy, or raised; what could it be?
Originally I thought i was like a bruise, because the color resembles one. I was hiking last night with a friend and we walked a good 5 miles. I have normal looking bruises from the night too, from falling a few times, and getting hit with branches.. but this one just showed up, I woke up with it, and really looks odd to me. Although its not raised, itchy, painful or anything. Its flat and under the skin.
