Customer Question
Hello- 2 wks ago...

Hello- 2 wks ago I woke up with a large long row of petechia on my R forearm? they are starting to fade, the whole row was approx 2 inches long. Yesterday I woke up to a perfectly round pencil eraser size red, flat, non itching spot on my left arm. thoughts?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

The large red spot I have had for 3 days. It has no symptoms, and neither did the petechia which appeared on my other arm about 3 weeks ago

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had cervical cancer in 2010, and I have had some keratosis spots on my face frozen off a few years ago. I am a nurse in a NICU.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
