Suggest Treatment For Small Red Cuts On The Abdomen

default
Posted on Tue, 21 Feb 2017
Question: I get some small round red cuts on my stomach area. They are not painful, no itching, and no burning. They bleed a little then they scab up and go away. I also get tiny red dots around my body which I think are popped blood vessels. Are these serious diseases and what is causing these to happen? I am very healthy person.

Brief Answer:
Please give details and post actual photographs as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history well and understood the concerns.
Please give additional information for me to assist you better:
Please post the clear and focused pictures long shot of abdomen and very clear close up of the lesions as it helps in on-the-spot diagnosis.
Also do a small test: Put a small glass like a lens or something, press on the red spot and see if it vanishes completely or not.

Brief Answer:
As explained below.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the photographs and the simple tests you did.
These are suggestive of folliculitis.
I would advise you the following:
Apply liquid Povidone Iodine locally to keep the skin sterile so that folliculitis is reduced.
If this alone does not help you may get a prescription of an antibiotic for the skin problem from your local Doctor.
Does not look to be a serious disease.
Please get the blood CBC and Sugar tests.

No certain cause

There is no certain reason which can be attributed to such skin disorders.
CBC to see if there is any infection that has increased the white cell count and Sugar to rule out diabetes.
