Red spots on thigh, dried blood in nose, irritation, bumps. Will I be okay?

I ve been getting red spots on my thigh (it s only in that area) and it hasn t gone away. These past few days I ve also noticed there has been dried blood in my nose when I wake up though I don t know if these two are related at all. I shower with pretty hot water sometimes and I know that can cause irritation but the spots were itchy the first day it showed up and now isn t all that itchy. The red spots are flat and not bumpy. I hope you can help me! Thank you

You are having purpura.

Red spots on thigh are petechie and ecchymoses.

That suggest the leak of lood in skin.

It is called purpura.

There are many causes...irritation,trauma,infection, blood diseases..and so on.

There may be no cause.. Called idiopathic.

You are having blood from nose..epistaxis.

The condition may be serious one.

So, i advise you to consult dermatologis for perfect diagnosis and tratment.

I hope you got my answer.
