1 Bump

Petechiae

R the spots always flats or can they turn into bumps?

If u have it, does it mean u have cancer?

The reason I ask is bc my son has about 13 little red spots all over him nd at first they were flat and couldn't feel them and they turned into bumps, now the ones that came up.first r flat again! So I'm worried

  • petechiae doesn't necessarily mean cancer. if you are so concerned, you need to call your kid's pediatrician. In fact, baby 411 instructs the moms to call the dr immediately if they discover petechiae on their infants.

    This might help
