What is on both of my arms from elbows to wrists are not really blisters, per se. It looks like little spots of blood that has raised to the top of my skin. No blisters to pop. I have a history a thin skin (it tears easily), but that is not what these are from. I can't find anything on the internet that looks like these. At first I thought it was my imagination, but a few days ago my husband noted that it appears they are growing. Any ideas?
Actually, my daughter did some research and we are pretty sure what is on my lower arms is solar purpura (sp?). We live in Ecuador on the coast and not far from the Equator. What's odd to me is that I used to get these when I got skin tears. But now they just 'showed' up! I am now religious with the use of sunscreen, especially on my lower arms. Thanks for your assistance.View Thread
