Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestions below.. Detailed Answer: Hi, As your blood work was normal(trombocite number), ferritin normal, and pt test normal, then, the blood spot you had it is not from the liver. It might be related to the damages of the local blood vessels; most probably precipitated from drinking wine (alcoholic drink). Please bare in mind that drinking alcohol would make the blood vessels thinner and fragile and easily to break, resulting to spots. Furthermore, sulphate components of red wine could also be responsible of such red spots. At the end, I suggest to stop drinking alcohol, even a glass of wine, and see what is happening for the next 3 months. If the spots will increase in number and size, please consult hematologist for further evaluation. Keep on conducting a healthy life!
