Red Spots Appear On The Feet?
I want to ask, my feet have appeared a reddish color for a long time, like scrapings, but when held it does not hurt or itch, when pressed the red color will disappear and then reappear
Skin lesions such as scrapings are called petechias. Petechiae occurs due to bleeding from capillary blood vessels that are near the surface of the skin. If the person is scraped out, it will appear along the area where skin trauma occurs due to being swiped and pressed by scraped coins.
Petechiae appear as small red spots such as the tip of the needle, not protruding (flat on the surface of the skin), not itchy, clustered, and do not disappear when pressed. Petekiae can occur in addition to physical trauma, can also be due to the use of certain drugs such as phenytoin, penicillin and can also be due to certain diseases that cause fragile capillaries and bleeding easily, such as dengue hemorrhagic fever, sepsis, endocarditis, vasculitis, thrombocytopenia .
Petechiae generally can disappear by itself after a few days. If the skin lesions arise persistently, appear more and more in other places, appear spontaneously without a clear history of trauma, accompanied by high fever, you should see a doctor directly. By looking at the skin lesions, the doctor can see if what you are describing above is a picture of petechial lesions or other types of skin lesions.
At the time of consultation, the doctor will ask about the history of your complaints, illnesses that have suffered, treatment that is being consumed. In addition, the doctor will conduct a physical examination and also supporting examinations such as blood tests to determine whether there are abnormalities / other diseases that underlie the appearance of the skin lesions.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
