Hi and thanks for the query.
These look like petechiae. These in themselves are not dangerous but can be a sign of certain conditions. If you do not have any symptoms like fever, bleeding from any orifice, headaches, muscle weakness or pain in any part of your body, itching on the rash etc. then you can schedule an appointment with your PCP. However, if you have any of the above signs or if you are on any medication for blood thinning or Oral Contraceptive pills, then you need to stop the medication and go see a physician in the ER or an Urgent Care.
Let me know if you have any queries about this.
Please do leave a positive rating for the service.
Best wishes.

I am on progestrone 100mg on a 10 days per month basis does it count as contraceptive?

Dermatologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 3 years ago
progesterone is a contraceptive. However, petechia are not a known side effect of Progestrone alone.
Let me know if you have any queries about this.
Please do leave a positive rating for the service.
Best wishes.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
