    Anything to worry about? Are they broken blood vessels? Viral rash? She has had a runny nose and cough fro last two months we she initially had antibiotics for. Related?

    Any ideas please?

    They are teeny tiny. Like petichiae. I wonder if it is because of the cold yesterday. We were out alot. She had a hat on but obviously her face was exposed. She seems fine in herself.

    Adam had those once a while back and I took him to the docs (fearing meningitis, he had a fever too) and the Doc checked him and said it was burst blood vessels due to: 1 crying too hard. 2 Rubbing his eyes or 3 coughing a lot. they cleared up in a few days but I do noticed them popping up every now and again!!!! If your still concerend go to gp and get her checked over!!xx
