schamberg's purpura.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Probably you are suffering from a condition called as schamberg's purpura.
It is a very mild breakage of capillaries leading to minute bleeding points under the skin appearing like freckles.

You dont need to worry as it is a harmless condition.
If possible please upload a photograph of the lesions.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.

There is an option to upload photographs on right side of query page.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
