This is puzzling me, I have red spots on my finger tips and toes, in the palm of my hands and also on my legs (lower, close to my ankles) they are noy purpura, I've had those pin pricks before. They are bigger and the skin of the red spots are kind of smooth and shiny and pretty circular, except for the ones on my finger and toe tips, they're more like a bruise and and the entire third tip section is reddish and blotchy. In the center of these blotches is a tinier, darker spot. They are painful when I apply pressure. Does anyone know what this is or had similar symptoms? I have an upcoming appointment with my rheumy but i'd still like some insight. I have'nt been in the sun alot and these spots are'nt anywhere else on my body, yet at least... Thanks for any responses.
