Blood spots appearing all over skin.

Edited , 3 users are following.

Hi, So about a 6 weeks ago I had a blood spots on one of my feet, which I didn't think too much of I figured I must have hit my foot at some point. But then the blood spots started spread over the next 2 weeks. More on my feet, Legs and arms. but they stopped spreading.

A month later they still have not gone, they don't seen to have spread any more, maybe one or 2 on my legs but that is all. They seem to have just turned a brown colour.

Some days they look like they are fading and some days they look worse. The only place they seem to have healed a bit is my arms but they are still definitely visible.

I have had no other symptoms, no fever, headaches, pains or anything at all. It is also not itchy.

I have gained a bit a weight over lockdown if that may be a cause.****

Thank you for any help.

    Ry, if this does not clear up and continues you should see your doctor. Blood patches like these can indicate something going wrong with your blood. You may need a blood test to assess your platelets.

    Just reread your article and you say you have had them for 6 weeks now. I think it is time to talk to your doctor.

    Just in case anyone else here is is suffering from a similar rash!

    I have been the doctors and have been diagnosed with Pityriasis Rosea, But also have been advised to have blood tests to rule out other conditions such as kidney issues or blood issues which i done today and am now just waiting on the results.

    I have had the rash for several months now and it did continue to spread to other parts of my body such as my trunk and hands. Some spots now seem to be disappearing but very, very slowly.

    Hopefully it is coming to an end now.
