Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Are the lesions itchy or just reddish discolouration like bleeding under the skin. Are you on any medication. You could have developed allergic reaction to some plants like poison ivy, insect bites or something you ate. Kindly apply Lactocalamine lotion on the areas. Consult a Dermatologist to evaluate if it is bleeding spots or allergic reaction which is important.
