Customer Question
I was looking for...

I was looking for an answer about red flat blood spots on my arm that seem to appear only after drinking alcohol. Wondering if it is related to my liver...

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Good

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

I don't really know because I don't know what the spots are related to. I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos hypothyroidism. Other than that, I only have asthma and the only meds I take are asthma meds.

How many spots do you have? Do you also see it when you don't drink? Can you upload a picture?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Only after drinking alcohol. Sometimes there are a few and they can be tiny like a pin dot or larger like the one I have today.
Doctor: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Do you have any diagnosed medical illness or condition? Have you seen anyone for it? When was your last blood test?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
my last blood test was july 2017. No problems. I have asthma and Hashimotos. I take asthma meds. I do not have a tendency to bleed.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
if I had seen someone for this issue, I would not be searching for an answer on here.

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.
