After 15 days of doxycycline petechciae were noted on hips, buttocks and back. The petechiae were caused from laying on a bath mat. This was 3.5 weeks ago. Petechiae still show on hips and buttocks if pressure if applied from a textured source like a rug or bath mat. All blood tests have come back normal including INR, PT, PTT, kidney and liver function and CBC. Have been given preliminary diagnosis of capillaritis which may or may not have been induced by the antibiotic. Being referred to a hematologist. Thoughts on another diagnosis?
