Brief Answer:
Are they tender? Do you have a fever?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This is suggestive of a viral infection. These spots are usually self limiting and would resolve spontaneously.

However, if you do have a fever and do inject drugs, it could represent an infection in the heart. In this case, I will strongly recommend that you seek immediate consultation for thorough evaluation and management.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wouldn’t say tender, maybe slightly more sensitive. But not by much. I do have a high tolerance to pain. No fever. Have been on a drinking binge since my grandmother passed for about 6 days. May or may not make a difference. Trying to make sure I’m not doing myself in. Thank you

Brief Answer:
Drinking binge might not help you!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Accept my condolences on the passing away of your grandma. This must be a very difficult moment for you. In such moments, taking great care of yourself is what is most important. Binge drinking isn’t doing that. I enjoin you to take a moment and ask yourself if this is what your grandma would have been must proud of it she were to make an unexpected journey back. If the response is NO, kindly stay safe.

Monitor the progress of these spots. Send updates with images to me, and most especially is something changes: Increased pain, change in coloration, increased size or number of spots.

Hope I have answered your query.
