Exam needed: These will have to be inspected by a physician to be sure, but they may be ruptured skin capillaries from some sort of pressure or injury to this area. If they begin appearing elsewhere things like blood dyscrasias or vasculitis would be suspected. If they remain localized, they will gradually fade after 7-10 days. ...Read more

Wait: You can closely monitor this for a few days if indeed this is the only area involved. Possibly a bug bite which can cause a localized petechial rash at times. Also assuming no other unusual bruising or bleeding is present such as bloody noses and no fever or feeling of illness. If all is well other than the spot, monitor and see what happens. ...Read more

Some causes are relatively benign, but some are very serious. Get it checked out. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Needs to be seen: It is impossible to say what something you are seeing on your skin is without being able to see it. New dark purple makes one think of bruise; however, there are other possibilities such as purpura and that can't be determined from your short question. I would advise you have either a virtual or in person appointment to address your concerns. ...Read more

On my inner right thigh I have purple small dots around a red bump. what could it be?

Red bump: Hi KavitaB, the red bump is likely a bug bite, pimple, or blocked follicle. The 'spots' around it are from the tiny blood vessels surrounding the wound becoming engorged with blood to help with the healing process. If it goes away in a few days then no big deal. However, if the purple spots start to spread or if the red bump becomes larger, painful, or starts to ooze (pus), then go to your doctor ...Read more
