I have had these red spots on my skin for about eight months now. The dermatologist has no idea what it is but thinks its cuased by some kind of an allergic reaction to some kind of infection. I know this doesn't help out a lot but i'm running out of options. I have these spots (they are swollen blood vessels that have bursts) all over my legs, torso, and arms. Seems like anything I do makes them worse. If I shower everyday they get worse. If I drink alcohol they get worse. I have stopped all medications and completely stopped drinking alcohol. But to my dismay the spots are not getting any better. Any suggestions? Oh and I've had two biopsies come back as negative for HSP.
