In brief: Stasis dermatitis

This could be small drops f blood in skin.
This can come from varicose veins. If however they are of recent onset they could represent a condition called vasculitis which is an allergic reaction to a drug, or possible underlying infection. Either way see a doctor for evaluation. It is difficult to remove the color of changes from varicose veins.
