I have a petechial rash on my thigh. It appeared today and has not changed at all. It is not raised or itchy

Good day, thank you for reaching out to us. Petechiae can be symptoms of fragility in the microvascular structures, such as the capillaries. They may be due to hypersensitivity, viral exanthem, or blood pathology. Kindly consult with a primary care doctor, either in person or through telemedicine services, for further evaluation and treatment. Thank you, and stay safe
