I've been reading up on petechiae and how they might be related to leukemia. I'm a bit confused, though. Do these spots come and go, or do they stay once they appear? I've noticed some spots on my arm, but they seem to fade and then reappear. Could this be a sign of leukemia, or is it something less serious?

      Mine come and go but then again I am on treatment. Suggest you ask if there's a dermatology-oncology department where you go. These types of specialists can tell you in a nano-second about those spots.

      In my case, the petechiae didn't come and go; they stayed pretty consistent until I got treatment.

      They don't typically come and go like some other skin issues. If you're seeing spots that appear and disappear, it might be due to something else

One of the replies mentioned that they have seen some spots fade with treatment, indicating improvement. However, it's also noted that red spots on the skin can be due to many things, like allergies or infections. It's recommended to get them checked but not to panic prematurely as there could be other reasons for their appearance.
