Just a little curious as to a lifelong skin 'condition' I have. From early teens (I am now late 30s, female) I have had increasing number of raised bright red spots all over my arms legs and body. I have hundreds of them now. Some are tiny, some are nearly a centimetre big. Many times they grow, come open and bleed profusely. The only place I don't have them, apart from one, is my face, thankfully. They are largest on my upper arms and back, and seem to increase with time, so I am now covered with these raised red dots and spots. Nobody else I know has them. I just have to be careful not to scrape them as they bleed so easily. Never asked a dermatologist about them, pointed them out to other doctors who mumble various different things like petechiae and some other terms, but my platelet levels are fine and I've had these all my life. Am I unique? Even more important, can I do anything to get rid of these? They are not pretty and I wonder if people think I have some contagious rash when I go bare armed.
