I have Celiac, diagnosed in 2007. I am also pregnant, 24 weeks. Recently I have developed several red, pin prick looking capillary dots on both hands (2 or 3 on each) and one on my shoulder. They fade when pressed and return. They are singular, not rash like at all. They are not Petichia (sp?) I visited my fam practice doctor who did not know what might be causing them except for possibly a liver issue. They ran blood work to check my liver and said those tests came back normal. I visited my OB today and she said they very well could be a liver problem manifesting in my skin. I am confused since my liver lab was ok? and she saw the labs and said they were fine. Wouldn't that tell if there was an issue?? I do suffer from intestinal issues, likely Crohns that is yet to be diagnosed. I hate Celiac. I feel like I am always waiting for the next big problem. Has anyone else had a problem like this? I am going to make an appt with a dermatologist anyway, but just curious.
