Petechiae (I Think)

Hi there.

A few weeks ago, I saw one (maybe two) small red 'blood spots' on my face (pinprick size). After less than 24 hours, they went.

I woke up today and there was another one which is going away again.

Is this anything to be worried about?

Just so you know:

I have suffered from a virus and every anxiety attack symptom since 1st Jan this year and have been to the Doc's 3 times with a phone appointment as well and they have found nothing although I know Petechiae can be a cause for concern so I may go back.

Still recovering from this virus - lymph nodes under arm healed now and the swollen one under my chin no longer hurts but is still swollen.

Nose seems is getting better - no longer bungged up (for now - been for a walk and all OK at the moment).

I still have a slight ringing in my hears though.

Full blood tests - OK (although some lab results to come tomorrow)
Blood pressure - OK
Doc checked breathing, lungs and heart with stethascope - OK
Urine test - OK (though lab results tomorrow)
Optician test - OK (just to put that in!)
Hearing test - OK
