2 small red spots, 1 on fore arm and other the bicep, not itchy, painless, clears when the skin is pulled/stretched, not pimple like, dry, flat, sligh?

Exam needed: To be sure these would have to be inspected by a physician, but since they blanch on stretching the skin, it would rule out a hemangioma or petechia. If these persist or increase in size, have them examined by your physician or dermatologist for diagnosis even though they sound benign. ...Read more

Mild CRPS. Sympt- burning pain, swelling, redness, red dots on skin, sensitivity.  Amitriptyline, physio- referred pain dr. Does mild CRPS worsen?

Can be challenging: However, most cases of CRPS encountered in my practice are far from mild. Have you had a diagnostic sympathetic block to confirm? Also, amitriptyline is rarely an effective drug in CRPS, and drugs such as Lyrica, Savella, (milnacipran) Cymbalta, work far better. Please confirm your diagnosis via second opinion. ...Read more

Those resolve too, but it takes longer, and is somewhat harder to explain to your friends. ...Read more
