    Follow-up Question, Gail

    You had kindly answered my concern for developing petechia (sp?) on my right breast, following my daughter squeezing the area the day before. I know you mentioned that it may take weeks to heal, but I am starting to get worried as 2 weeks later, and it is still as red as it was from day one. Is this normal? It has not changed, spread, still the same spots, but just still very red. Could it be possible that these spots could possibly never subside?

    I would check with my doctor.

    Petechiae may look like a rash and usually appear in clusters. Here they appear on a leg (A) and on an abdomen
