Avatar f tn I have a skin problem. These red dots have been on the side of my chin for a while they started out as pimples then turned into these dots that wouldnt go away they get really dry and I have to take the dead skin off constantly. As well it then stings. I just wanted to know if anyone could help me out with this!
Avatar m tn For the past couple of weeks I have notice that red dots have been appearing on my skin. They don't hurt nor itch at all. It seems to be breaking out underneath my bra line/stomach area a lot. I have been working out lately. The past few days they have been break outs on my chest and my arms and stomach. They are all tiny tiny dots and aren't growing. The ones on my chest I can't see them but I can feel them all over my chest. Any advice on what they can possibly be?!
Avatar f tn Thank you for your comments. I am waiting for an appointment with a dermatolgist but in the meantime I "googled" pityriasis rosea and reviewed the photos and my red dots look nothing like this. The red dots I have on my skin are tiny in size and are sporadic, not clustered. As the time continues to pass, I am seeing more and more dots but again, they are coming up here and there and not bunched together. It's quite strange.
Avatar m tn About 2 months ago after having unprotected sex i noticed about a week later i had little red dots when i pulled back my foreskin. There werent any on the shaft or the head just little ones between the head and the pulled back foreskin part. As i was concerned i saw my GP where i was told it wasnt an std and it didnt look like herpies, which later on the screen test i had proved it wasnt. However after having sex again a month later the same problem came back lasting a few days then disapering.
Avatar n tn For about 3 years now I have had these strange pin-sized red dots on my hands and arms, they are red and very small, if I look close enough at them I can almost see little red veins coming off of the dot. If I apply pressure to the dot, the dot and veins will dissapear for a split second but then come back again. When the weather is cold the dots will be more noticeable and a white ring will go around the dot making it stand out more.
Avatar n tn Although there is no pain, recently I have noticed while urinating a small red rash or red dots appear on the end of my penis. Any suggestion to what this may be will be gratefully received.
Avatar f tn It is difficult to comment without examining but the red dots could be petechiae. Petechiae are pinpoint-sized red dots under the surface of the skin. The commonest cause of petechiae is a low platelet count (thrombocytopenia).

Avatar m tn I have been experiencing tiny red dots on skin, ranging in size from a tiny pinprick to a very small freckle. These dots are bright red and when pressed upon with a finger nail the red center disappears leaving a slight red outline. They did not appear all at once, but rather over a period of weeks.
Avatar f tn They are not pimples or bumps as the surface of my skin is smooth. The red dots look like blood dots under my skin. They usually appear when I am very stressed or having elevated levels of anxiety. Sometimes I notice them appear right after I have had a rash over that area. I do break out in rashes when I'm very stressed and having racing thoughts. I also get dizzy and lightheaded during these stressful periods as well.
Avatar n tn I have little red dots on my feet and shortly after I noticed them, then I had patches of skin peeling. I now have the peeling skin on my hands but haven't noticed any red dots on my hands. The peeling skin - it peels several layers of skin in the small spots.
Avatar n tn I have always had these red dots on my skin, mainly on my arms and some on my bum as well. I had them since I was little but not sure what they are. i notice quite a few people have them as well. It also makes my skin not very smooth but instead quite rough sometimes; I am very self conscious of my arms as they make my arm red all over with dots. Does anyone know what they are?
Avatar m tn I have Red dots and dry skin on the tip of my Penis. Along with bumps on my upper inner legs and itch it feels like it is spreading under my stomace and to my butt cheeks. The last girl i slept with has been known to get around and the condom broke but once I noticed it did we stopped. She claims to have nothing, any ideas I'm really nervous about gettin checked unless I absolutly have to.
Avatar m tn On the last day of the medication I noticed some red dots again on my skin. This is very discouraging since the red dots were away and my private area was not irritated. I felt like a "normal" person. I hope my doctor knows why the medicine didn't work.
Avatar f tn So again i would have to find something else. Also, where my red dots start to appear my skin seems to get a shade darker. Like originally my skin is quite fair, so the color of my skin seems to be uneven in some places. For example around my eyes Ive never had any read dots so the skin in that area stays the same, and appear to be brighter and lighter than the other areas.
Avatar f tn I have been waking up with rashes and red patches under my arms and the creases of my legs.
Avatar n tn Hey so recently my body has been covered in these red bumps/dots. Only certain areas itch and the other areas just look bad. From what I remember it started around my belly button and stomach area about 3 days ago, and it spread thrown my chest, back, a little on my thighs and hand/arm. It's really bad on my stomach area and the other spots don't itch, just gross redness. I'm starting to worry and I've tried taking Benadryl just to calm it down.
Avatar n tn I discovered I have red dots that have appeared around my foreskin and on the head of my penis. I wouldnt say I have any stinging or itching just that I am a lil sensitive to the touch around this area. Could this be a result of just too vigorous sex or an STD that slipped under the radar to bit me on the arse now. Help me...
Avatar m tn Some are little red dots and some look more like small pimples.
Avatar n tn Today, I saw them white, and the skin was coming off my penis, means, the red dots turned into white, and then just like dry skin, they were coming off, but not around everywhere on the penis, some of them were still white, and red. I'm 20, I knew I'm not HIV infected, but I still went to get checked, and I turned out to be Negative, also I havent been with anyone in three to four month... can somebody please tell me what these are or what should i do???
Avatar f tn s not.). Then I noticed I was developing red dots on my breasts which quickly turned into either red circles resembling ringworm or red scaly leasions varying in size and shapes. These "red dots" first started on my breasts. Within a week I had them on my groin. Within two weeks they started to appear on my stomach. Same characteristics "ring worm looking" circles, red scaly leasions. A few will bleed, very minimal itch, not painful.

Avatar m tn I have checked the photograph and from the photograph it looks like a cherry angioma rather than petechiael spots. These are basically skin growths which are red papules on skin containing an abnormal proliferation of blood vessels. They are made up of clusters of capillaries at the surface of the skin, forming a small round dome ("papule"), which may be flat topped and may be red or purple in color.
