I have some red flat dots on my feet, ankles, and leg. They are petechiae because they do not blanch. I do not have many of them, but I feel that they always tend to fade and come back in the same spot. I do not know if it is normal. I consulted with five doctors, and none of them ordered a blood test, and they do not think it is worrisome. A doctor said that it is capillaritis, maybe he is right, but it does not look like online. I want to get another opinion. Can you please help me?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I went through your case, and there is nothing to be worried about. It is capillaritis or Schamberg disease. In both conditions, blood oozes out from blood vessels and gets deposited in the skin layers. There is a variation of skin color, some have dark skin tone, and others have light, so the actual appearance of this deposited blood is variable. In some, it could be red or even purple.
Thank you for the advice doctor.
Do I have to worry about leukemia? Can you please tell me why I should not worry because I have health anxiety?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Capillaritis or Schamberg disease is a benign and only cutaneous disorder with no internal pathology.
On the other hand, Leukemia is a cancerous condition of the blood, and it is something serious that needs urgent treatment from an oncologist or physician. So, please do not worry.
