Hi. Someone asked me a question a few pages ago and wanted to make sure they saw my reply so I am reposting. Hope everyone is doing well, you guys are the best! My reply:

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!

Good luck to everyone!
