look into HHT its a blood disorder, that is one of the symptoms, do you have constant nose bleeds? that is a sign.

Press a clear drinking glass - or other piece of clear flat plastic or glass - against the spots and see if they fade or not.  If not, sounds like petechiae, which I get all the time.  They can be a symptom of a blood disorder, but in my case they just happen.
