HI all. I was just searching on the internet recently and i came across the word petechia. I started looking at my body and i noticed that i had the same looking spots on my chest and 1 on my arm. About maybe 10 total. These have been here for years, as long as i can remember and i am in perfect health. Would petechia from blood disorders come in a form of a rash and not just some dots here and there or would they also come with other symptoms of a blood disorder. Like i said i have had these for years and i cant find that much information about them. Also, they seem to be raised a little bit. If i run my finger over them i can feek them.
I have an appointment on friday with a dermatologist for some itching i have been having, but while im there i am going to show him the little spots.. I scarred to death though. But like i have said they have been there for as long as i can remember (years)
