To worried22yo
can you tell me about your petachiae, what it looks like how many where etc. I know someone in the same situation as you massive symptoms despite a 6 month neg. One of which are these tiny red dots. About 30 of them total some actually look like small moles, but some look like splattered like blood exploded into the skin. All are small though the size of a pen point. Located on upper arms, torso and legs. How about yours? and how are you doing otherwise

Hi there. I was worried because I was in fact diagnosed by 2 different doctors with petechiae. the second just ran a CBC (with differential) and results were normal. I have had tiny red dots on chest near armpit and on arm in bicep area primarily. It does look like a "splattering of blood," that is a very good way to put it. I hav ebeen trying to get past this because after my 35 day DNA PCR, neg. ELISA at 5 1/2 months and neg. 7 month ELISA I feel out of options. It's like hey if I have something terrible, I will find out sooner or later right? Not much I can do. Hope this helps.

Good luck to everyone!
