Brief Answer:
If it is due to some injuries then no need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
petechia is a minor bleeding in to skin due to bursting of blood vessels.

Most common cause is injury. If it is due to minor injuries then no need to worry. But if not then you should concern. It is sign of infection or other medical illness like bleeding disorder.

Give me your medical history and history of any injury. So that I can help you further.
