Any other diseaseyou are suffering from?
Any medicines you may be on?

Thanks

I have dots and groups of dots--red to brownish--around my eyes and all down my cheeks. I look like I have measles. I've had this before with vomiting, but this is the worst I've ever had. In the past, it has gone away on its own. It has been about 40 hours since the vomiting, and it is still very prominent.

 

My skin is usually flawless, so this blotching is very upsetting.

 

I don't have any diseases per se, although I am being treated for allergies (Fexofenadene, Astelin, Nasonex), osteoporosis (Boniva), and acid reflux (Aciphex). I also take Lipitor.

Do you get this usually with vomiting?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes, it has happened before, and it goes away. But this is the worst.
Expert:  Dr.Sawhney replied 5 years ago.
DearCustomer

These capillary leaks lead to collection of blood in the subcutaneous tissue and this is broken down by our body slowly.
It will take around 2 weeks for it to be broken down completely and to be absorbed.

Smaller or less prominent dots will disappear earlier tha the more prominent ones.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Is there anything I can do to speed the process along? Is there a chance that they will NOT go away?
Expert:  Dr.Sawhney replied 5 years ago.
Sorry for the delay.

I had to leave for my surgery.

There is not much that you can do to speed the process as body breaks down the hemoglobin at its own pace.
If they have happened due to vomiting only they should not persist.
