Can petechia start as a solid pink spot and then change into the classic pin prick spots?

Can petechia start as a solid pink spot and then change into the classic pin prick spots?

Rashes: It sounds like you may be describing a purpuric rash - which is similar to petechiae, except it's a complete 'sheet' of rash... It suggests to me that you have some hematologic issues? If so- I would definitely want to get this checked out by a doctor. They should be checking a complete blood count among other things. Have you had any mosquito bites? I hope you can get a proper evaluation ASAP. Read more

Good day Dr. I have a 22days old baby boy with a pink spot at the back of his head neck, so I would like to know what must I do to remove it,?

Nothing: Without seeing the spot in person it's difficult to provide a certain diagnosis. Many babies are born with "stork bites" -red/salmon colored areas - on the back of their necks/heads. It is a birthmark and nothing to worry about and will fade over time on it's own. If you are still concerned please have a pediatrician evaluate it before subjecting your baby to unnecessary and potentially harmful tx Read more

Leave it alone...: Without a direct look at it, it's hard to say for sure what is you described. So, you may leave it alone and watch it for next few months as long as it does not hurt you in any way and not increase in size or change in color. Of course, if uneasy or in doubt, see a urologist or dermatologist or even a Doc timely. But, don't forget to practice healthy lifestyle without overindulgence & obsession. Read more

I have a black scaly spot on my penile shaft. It popped up this morning I'd assume as I had not noticed it before. It is about 1-2 MM?

Here are some. ..: Congratulate for popping the black spot out, it'll recur over time because it a hyperactive sebaceous gland with an opening to the outside. If no opening, it'll become a sebaceous cyst. Usually, no active care for such is needed. Nonetheless, have a urologist take a look if having been bothersome to you. Read more

Don't know if you: Missed a period or not & when you took the pregnancy test. If HPT was taken before a period was missed - can take it after period is missed. If it was negative at the time the period was missed - you can re-take in a week if still no period. Take care. Read more

If the size of the area is enlarging you may need to be corncerned about an infection and see you doctor sooner. Read more
