Unkown Red Spot
ginpancake posted:
I have a spot on the left top side of my chest just below my colar bone that started out as a single pin sized red dot, but it has grown to the width of a dime and the length of a quarter. It's not raised from the skin in any way. It does not itch. But, I have noticed several (hundreds in fact) pin sized red dots since the start of this one. They are not concentrated to any one area. Could someone please tell me what this might be?
Also, my son, 11 years old, had some sort of something that suddenly appeared on his legs last night. It looked like the smooth blood blister type of things when you scratch to hard and bring the blood to the surface only he had not scratched at all. It covered a large portion of both theighs, and was warm to the touch. Please help with any information at all. Thanks so much!
