Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Oh hello. You seem to be a different Dr David to the one I have spoken to before. But perhaps you can help.
I have tiny pinprick dots all over my arms and upper legs and abdomen, also some on my face. I keep getting more and more of them as I age and I have also had 4 pregnancies and deliveries so I wonder if they are hormonal. Some are a few mm and raised and I am sure they are cherry angiomas, but how about the hundreds of tiny ones? Are they something to worry about?
You look very different! ;-)
I thought petechiae are worrisome and indicate liver disease or malignancy?
Does it matter that I have so many and that they keep on increasing? I have showed by PCP and he says they are okay, but I am still worried.
