Ok today I just exercised, pushing myself
to a new personal high of 30. When i stopped
I felt fine, but like half an hour later I went
to the bathroom and noticed i had these little
red dots under my eyes, that looked like blood
vessles almost burst leaving small pools of blood
under the skin. Its happened before on my arms,
never my face (in fact it is on my arms too now
that i check) but I don't really know what it is.
Is this really serious or can it be i'm forgetting to breath enough when i exercise making the marks?
I'm not sure if this makes any sence but it is kind of freaking me out.
i get those spots too. when i have a particularly difficult and long cycle, i come back home and as im about to get into the shower i notice red spots all over my chest and back. im 16 and i was wondering if anyone could tell me what they are about
During exericise a small red spot sometimes developes about 2 inches below the bottom of my right chest area. It does not hurt, but it swells to about the size of a thumb tack head. This has been going on randomly for about 7-8 years now. Any advice about what this might be? Thanks much!!
This most commonly is due to flushing of skin and this is a form of hypersensitivity or allergic reaction due to exercise.
Physical activity can cause allergic symptoms in some people. The symptoms are hives or spots (large or small), itching of the skin, flushing (redness) of the skin and this can occur anywhere on the body other than the chest area.
Most symptoms can be controlled by taking medications your physician prescribes and by slowing down or stopping your exercise as soon as symptoms start. You should always exercise with a partner who knows about your condition.
In some people, eating certain foods before exercise may make allergic symptoms more likely to occur. Keep track of what you eat before exercising for few weeks.
You can try some antihistamine or epinephrine shots. Discuss with a physician who will follow up on your condition.
