I am getting blood spots under the skin on only my left arm. They appear suddenly and fade away in about 10 days. What causes them?

I am getting blood spots under the skin on only my left arm. They appear suddenly and fade away in about 10 days. What causes them?

Doctor can evaluate: Blood spots on the skin are called petechiae (purpura if they are bigger splotches), and are due to blood cells leaking out of the tiny blood vessels in the skin. After the blood cells have leaked out, the area behaves just like a bruise (the body breaks down the blood cells into different colored pigments, and carries them away over a week). The Dr. wants to find out why blood cells were leaking. ...Read more

Dark heart shapped spots under my skin near my armpits. First appeared a month ago under one arm and now its under my other arm. Idk what it could be?

People who have diabetes and are obese may have acanthosis nigricans, where pigmentation may occur at the underarms and neck. If the skin feels and otherwise looks okay, you can watch it for now, but if it continues to spread, a doctor should check it. Avoid hair removal creams and other harsh chemicals. ...Read more
