Hello

Are you the person who has the rash? Or is this someone you know?

Please know that I am not a doctor and in this case it would be wise for this individual to see her doctor.

In researching your question, Petechiae can have many causes and some are very serious, if that is what the rash really is. Here are some causes for petechiae from the Mayo Clinic.

You cannot get a diagnosis or treatment on the Internet so I would advise this person to talk to their doctor.
