Hi, I'm a 24 year old female, and just a few days ago, I noticed a fair amount of tiny red dots on my feet. They don't blanch when I press on them, and they don't hurt or itch. Some of them are slightly raised. I don't know how long they've been there, but I just now noticed them.
See, at first I thought it might be flea bites since my cat sleeps on my bed, and I decided to look up if flea bites could cause that. Instead, I read all kinds of terrifying conditions, and I've been terrified ever since. I have very bad hypochondria and General anxiety disorder, and all I've been doing for the last few days is shake and cry and worry. I did go to the doctor a couple days ago, and he took a look and said it's nothing to worry about. He figured it was inflamed hair follicles from dry skin, but I'm not so sure since a tiny one appeared on the sole of my foot. But my anxiety keeps making me think he was wrong, and that I should go back and demand a blood test. I think he's sick of me by now though; I've visited his office quite a bit over the last three months because I kept feeling like I had a UTI.
Anyway, I have anxiety medicine but I'm just so scared that it isn't helping much. everyone keeps reassuring me I'm ok but I'm just so scared. I don't know what to do. I keep looking at my feet, and I can't tell if I'm getting more or if I'm looking at the same ones. I hate living in fear like this. I don't have any other noticeable differences with my body other than these tiny red dots, but I keep convincing myself of the worst possible scenario. (Sorry this got really long but I don't have anyone I can talk to without them getting annoyed with my tendencies to worry)
