What Causes Blood Spots On The Skin
I am getting blood spots under the skin on only my left arm. They appear suddenly and fade away in about 10 days. What causes them?
Doctor can evaluate: Blood spots on the skin are called petechiae (purpura if they are bigger splotches), and are due to blood cells leaking out of the tiny blood vessels in the skin. After the blood cells have leaked out, the area behaves just like a bruise (the body breaks down the blood cells into different colored pigments, and carries them away over a week). The Dr. wants to find out why blood cells were leaking. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
