Thanks for writing to us.

I have gone through the details submitted. I also was able to view the picture on WWW.WWWW.WW
The details and pictures are suggestive of a hematological disorder (disorder of blood and blood components), either bleeding disorder or malignant disorder. The possibility is more of a bleeding disorder like thrombocytopenic purpura which occurs due to decreased platelet count.

Getting your blood counts tested (complete hemogram with platelet count) along with coagulation will help us ruling out bleeding disorders.

Yes, the details symptoms suggest further evaluation and it is worth consulting your physician / hematologist

Hope this answers your question. For any further query, do write to us

Take care and Regards,

Dr Sadiq
