Petechiae all over

Three days ago I noticed tiny red dots that look like freckles on my face, legs, feet, and abdomen. They are not that noticeable as they are very tiny but there are a lot of them. I looked it up and it looks like petechiae. According to what I have read petechiae can mean something bad.  I asked my family about it and they think it is nothing. Can someone please tell me if I should see a doctor? I posted in the dermatology forum but no one answered.

You might lookup Bartonella rashes to see if yours look similar. Bartonella is an insect borne disease that can cause cherry hemangiomas or red striated rashes.
