I have little red spots on legs, what is it?

Please clarify: Using the words "red spots' is probably using the most ambiguous possible terms to ask for help. Can you be a bit more specific or give more of your story. What has happened recently? Where and when did these appear? What do they look like?

How do I prevent little red spots on my legs after I shave?

How do I prevent little red spots on my legs after I shave?

Don't shave so close: You're probably shaving very close with a multi-blade razor. Those razors actually shave below the skin line, causing ingrown hairs which appear as red bumps. Try a single-blade or electric razor. You won't get as close a shave, but that's the idea.

Unkown: Most likely it is just an inflammation of the gland by a hair follicle or sebaceous follicle. it could be a bug bite of soe kind. These usually reolve on their own and do well if kept clean. They can deveop seious infections in which case you will need to see a doctor

Red spots: There aren't many illnesses like this that can kill a person. How long have they been there? What do they look like? If you sent a picture of these with your question you would probably get a more helpful answer. Hope this helps!

Folliculitis?: The location you describe suggests folliculitis..inflammation of hair follicles. Tender red spots often with a surface pustule is classic. It is usually due to mild skin infection with staph aureus. It may also be due to irritation from regrowing hairs if there is any shaving/waxing/plucking. Good hygiene/washing is imperative; expose buttocks to air. Try topical antibiotics/OTC acne treatments.

Skin changes: Skin is the major protection of our delicate internal tissues from a harsh environment, it is susceptible to injury itself. Friction and exposure to moisture (sweat) reducing protective skin oils is the cz. Clothing may also contribute by bunching or causing friction. Trying different clothing, avoid scratching and apply a good protective skin cream daily and see.

Angiomas?: Hard to say without seeing them, but i suspect that they are cherry angiomas, which are like moles except that they are made of small blood vessels. They are harmless - if that is indeed what they are. You really should have a dermatologist look at them in person, so that you'll know for certain what they are.

Scratching causes it: Petechiae result from a minor bleed from a broken capillary blood vessel. The most common cause for petechiae limited to a specific area is local trauma. Scratching is a common cause. If your petechiae appeared in certain areas only after you started scratching that would be a likely cause. If that is not the case or if your problem persist or worsen see your physician for a specific diagnosis.
