skin disorder

during a medical follow up exam the physician noticed a number of small red dots scattered around my arms, stomach and back. i've noticed them but attributed them to the fact that i'm no longer a youngish person. the physician expressed concern. has anyone else experienced anything like this? could these dots develop as a result of the medication or the chlamydia itself? thank you all....

Cpn may cause petechiae. To read two threads on these, you can enter petechiae into the search box at the top right of the page. Combined Antibiotic Protocol minocycline, azithromycin, metronidazole for muscle pain, insomnia, interstitial cystitis, sinus, disphonia, dry eyes, stiff neck, veins, thyroid, TMJ.

minocycline, azithromycine, metronidazole 2007-2009, chelation for lead poisoning, muscle pain, insomnia, interstitial cystitis (almost well), sinus, dry eyes, stiff neck, veins, hypothyroid, TMJ, hip joints (no longer hurt)

You might also try variations on the word, as I know I spelled it petichae when I posted last week. Who knows what other creative spellings we've used? Image removed.

I too had noticed petechiae increasing when I started abx. After reading further, I found references that noted decreased uptake/production of vitamin K in the intestine as a result of abx usage. I then assumed that since petechiae are due to rupture of small blood vessels, that vitamin K supplementation might reduce the appearance of these, since K is responsible for clotting (I was also experiencing more bruising). After supplementing with a "full spectrum" vitamin K (K1 & K2) I noticed fewer of these red spots, and had less bruising.
