Looks Like a Blood Blister???

judy_jayApril 25, 2007

I posted this at the Kitchen Table but never got a response. I have blood-type spots that appear on my arms every so often. They don't hurt & vanish within a week or less but I just wondered what causes this blood to build up under my skin. Sometimes there's a couple next to each other, but usually just one on one or both arms. Thanks for any info. I appreciate the help.

Sounds like a condition called Petechiae, which are tiny hemorrhages of the small capillaries in the skin. I would probably get it checked out though.
