    When to worry about petechiae?

    When to contact your doctor with petechiae? The appearance of a petechia is not a medical emergency, but it is advisable to consult an expert because its presence could be a symptom of a more serious problem than requiring specific treatment.

    How do petechiae disappear?

    There is no specific therapy for the treatment of petechiae: the treatment depends on the triggering cause. For example, scurvy-induced petechiae can be removed by specific vitamin C therapy.

    What can cause petechiae?

    Trauma, bacterial infections, platelet or vitamin K deficiency, skin aging, circulation problems can cause petechiae to appear. In particular, when the spots appear on the face, micro hemorrhages, following coughs, could be responsible for the disorder.
