HelloIt is most likely not a concern.Unless you get more, or have other symptoms, in which case you need lab tests to check your platelet levels.

Please click a positive to reverse your negative.Swelling is not something you mentioned initially.This can be: thyroid disease, liver or kidney disease, or blood clots [usually not if swelling is on both sides].You need to go in.It can also be a vasculitis, in which the blood vessels are inflamed, which is an autoimmune disease.Be seen today.
