Hello,

It may be petechiae or purpura may be due to senile dermatitis or thrombocytopenia or viral fever etc.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Get it done platelet count and bleeding time.

Use tablet limcee 500 mg once a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult with your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your queries. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
