Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern.
From your history, there are two possibilities. One is that of an allergy, where such tiny raised spots appear, and could be associated with itching. Normally such rashes follow a viral infection. But resolve spontaneously.
The second possibility is that of petechiae.This could happen due to reduced platelet count.
If there are no associated symptoms, then you should not worry. I can understand being worried about your health worsens the situation, but you can trust me. If there was something serious there would be associated symptoms like fever, infections, e.t.c
Feel free to discuss further,
Patient replied :
Thanks for your prompt reply. The bumps are not raised and I have not had a viral infection that I am aware of recently.
Do you think I should have the rash looked at by a doctor tomorrow? As I said, my main concern is serious illness associated with a rash that doesn't fade when pressed down on (meningitis etc) but your answer has alleviated some of my concern- thank you again.
Thank you for your follow-up.
If the rash is not increasing and there is no associated itching then there is no need to visit a physician right away.
You just need to carefully observe for new spots. If they keep appearing you can visit your primary physician and get your CBC with ESR test done.
