There is another thread on the forum about petechiae and they mentioned sunburn as something that can cause it. Since you had bloodwork done last time, there is no need to worry.

#1 rule of health anxiety DO NOT GOOGLE

Nothing good ever comes of it. How many times have folks on the forum diagnosed themselves with a deadly disease because of google? Thousands collectively. And how many of those diagnoses were correct? Less than 0.1% probably. If Google were a real doctor, it would have had its license to practice medicine revoked long ago.

Oh waiting for the day lol. I wish it didn't allow you to look up anything medical.. oh how free would a lot of us be. I don't do it anymore but once I did and fainted. It told me I had als. And I believed it..sad but true..scary what Google can do to you. Hugs love your post.

Awee I'm sorry that it is the cause of your anxiety. Every time your mind gets worried.. remember that you have had it looked at previously and even had blood work done. Your Dr wasn't concerned. I know your mind might say well that was last time and this time it's different.. but that's the anxiety talking and not facts. Hugs. You are ok.
