Take her to Doctor: Hickeys are bruise like marks caused by suckling the skin (aggressive kissing) until small blood vessels burst under the skin. She needs to be evaluated for a blood disorder. Thrombocytopenia low platelets can be caused by immune system problems, leukemia, s/e of medications. ...Read more

Local trauma: A hickey is a discolored area on the skin that results when small blood vessels break under the skin, causing a type of bruise (purpura). The appearance of the bruise will normally change in appearance and color over time. Small red dots (petechiae) may also appear. These types of injuries rarely scar, but may stay discolored for a fair amount of time. ...Read more

I have small hickey-looking rashes on my left leg. One on outside thigh and 2 on inner thigh. I've also had back ache and stomach pains(constipation)?

Pic worth 1000 words: A digital pic of the spots would be much easier to diagnose. They could be anything from insect bites to an allergic skin rash. Doubt that the stomach symptoms have much to do with spots on your leg. If they get larger, travel to the other side, become more plentiful in number, or start getting swollen etc. you will need to see a doctor. ...Read more

Hive?: Sounds like this is new for you. If the spots come and go within a 24 hour period, then almost certainly hives. Watch out for new foods or personal care products that may cause them, but most of the time a cause cannot be found. If you have no contraindications, you could try otc cetirizine that is longer acting than Benadryl and less sedating. If persistent, evaluation by an Allergist can help ...Read more
