I have had red spots under my skin for less than a year. They are all over my back and lower back, a few ones on my hands and legs.

When I kinda scrape them a small amount of blood comes out.
Can you help me in diagnaosing this problem?

  • I have had red spot under my skin for years now started with one spot under my skin on my ring finger its not there anymore but now i have more all over not tons but several every once in awhile i get another one and then every now and then one disappears. I have showed several doctors and they all said it was fine....then last week i went to a doctor who actually asked me how long i had them he thought it was a parasite because my skin is actually lighter around the red dot. (my dot disappears when i press on it for a few seconds then comes back) I just started a blood cleaner no visable results yet will let you know if he puts me on somthing else. (He thinks it might be from contact with fleas.) Mine is definitely not a petechiae but something else to check into if you have different symptoms.
