Noticed some tiny red spots on my skin that don't disappear when you put some pressure on them and heard it could be linked to my leukemia. did anyone else experience something similar...?

      Red spots can also be a leukemia-related rash, and may also be triggered by certain kinds of treatment (tx). I've never had them, but I have had CLL for 26 yrs and am still here to say so.

      Tiny red spots on skin are often associated with leukemia. They are basically tiny blood vessels that don't heal because not enough "healing" platelet cells are present to assist with clotting. They don't need any separate treatment but it's a good idea to discuss them with the CLL specialist you're working with. They're called petechiae. I saw them decades ago on my cousin, who had acute lymphocytic leukemia.

      Hello! I saw your post about being worried over red spots – I totally understand why you'd feel anxious. But you know, there are so many reasons you could have them, and it's not always something serious like leukemia.

      Honestly, I think sometimes people jump to the worst conclusions too quickly. Red spots on the skin can be due to so many things, like allergies or infections. it's also important not to panic prematurely

      been there! I saw those pesky red spots (petechia) before my leukemia diagnosis. Definitely get it checked, but stay positive. there are other reasons for it so might not be related for you, or might be treatment related...

      Is this the only symptom you have? usually it will present itself with other symptoms and not just skin, but if you're worried discuss it with your PCP and they will probably send you to do some bloodwork

Some individuals have reported experiencing similar symptoms, such as red spots that did not disappear when pressure was applied. These spots were consistent and did not come and go. Some also noticed unexplained weight loss, persistent fevers, infections, and constant fatigue along with the red spots. However, it's important to note that these symptoms can be caused by many different conditions, not just leukemia.
