Ok thanks

Dr. Shahzad MD :

welcome

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Does the rash itch or cause any symptoms?

Customer:

No she seemed fine and it wasnt itchy, she didnt feel unwell.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do you have a picture that I could see?

Customer:

No sorry, they looked like spots but under her skin,

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Most commonly these spots are due to a viral infection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Sometimes these kind of spots may be due to low platelets in the blood.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

In the vast majority of cases these go away in a few days to a couple of weeks time on their own.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If these persist or worsen then she should be seen.

Seems like nothing serious or anything to worry about.
