Hello and welcome to HCM
The presence of these small red dots (petechiae
) are a feature of reduced platelet count
Get your complete hemogram done especially when these petechiae develop.
It would be better to get a manual platelet count along with automated count.
Is the appearance associated with onset of fever?
This may help in reaching the diagnosis.
Anyways, visit your physician for the tests and further management.
Thanks and take care
