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.

If they have been there for years, I don't think it is something too serious because you would be ill long before now.  That being said you should have a derm look at it and see what he or she says.
