Hello,

Petechiae on legs are due to local hemorrhage (bleeding). Seeing a hematologist will help determine the right diagnosis, that's the most reasonable thing you should do. Coumadin might be the cause. That's why your doctor stopped it until you see hematologist. Keep regular follow up with your caring doctor.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Albana Sejdini, General & Family Physician
