Red pinhead dots on skin
« on: April 06, 2007, 07:10:41 PM »
This is not a big concern for me everyone, but I though I would bring it up in case anyone else has them. I have always had this one little bright red dot on my chest the size of pinhead that looks like a little blood burst right under the surface of the skin. It never bothered me (aside from cosmetic reasons) but I noticed three new ones on my stomach - two on one side by my ribs, and one on the opposite set of ribs. They are not pimples, they are not sore, and they are barely noticeable. I had some pains in my abdominal muscles for the past few days (which I have attributed to skateboarding as some of you may remember), and they popped up around the same time. For some reason I'm not really freaked out, but I know they could be 'petechiae' which are burst blood vessels under the skin that occur when one has leukemia.

Let me know what you think

I will definitely not google this. But I'm still curious as to why these dots occured now. I wonder if it can be stress related?

Hi, I think I know what you mean.  Those are normal.  I forget what they are called but they are kind of like little pin sized injury in the skin.  My bro in law has them and he's a doctor...he said it's nothing to worry about and lots of people have them.  I don't think it's stress related--just happens.

"I hope so mayoclinic is like omfg go to the doctor rightnow"

hahaha that just sounded funny.. :happy0151:

but yea i know exactly what your talking about. i have one on my chest and kinda near my left eye and i've had them for as long as i can remember too. i don't know what they are but im sure there harmless..dont hurt..dont bleed or scab..just there and kind of annoying because you want to know what they are. but im sure its nothing and it sounds like what you said broken blood vessels underneath the skin because i think that would make sense. anyway take care.

Hey Coov....my daughter has those all over her. Her doctor says they are nothing to worry about. I have them also. I have had them for years and years. Trust me, my daughter has several medical conditions and has been seen by many specialists, including a dermatologist, who have all said they are nothing. Hope that helps.

Though a lot of folks have already replied with the same answer, I figured one more couldn't hurt :)  I also have these red pinhead dots mainly over my chest and stomach, with a few scattered elsewhere.  I've read that they can be stress-related, so I wouldn't worry. 

So, no worries--it seems to be common among us here!

And no more googling symptoms!  :bigsmile:
