PICTURES possibly Petechiae?

OK so about early October or late September I developed a random blotchy rash that appeared all over my body almost instantaneously. They are non raised, non itchy, pinpoint etc
I have informed countless doctors that lymphoma runs in my family, I have very large growing lymph nodes, my stools have changed, these appear on my arms and legs. They have not faded and there is a bright red slightly raised on on the right side on my lower rib that is slightly raised very bright red and does not go away when pressed.

I'm 22 years old, male and feel I'm in great shape.
Though I did lose a lot of weight randomly then gained it back also very quickly within 6-8 months....
