    Two things i'm starting to be concerned about.

    One - this morning I noticed on both side of my waist I have area's about the size of a palm, of broken blood vessels (i think that's what they are. they look like little pin points of blood under the skin). I looked it up on WebMD and there was some connection with Lupus patients getting this type of rash, so i'm a little concerned obviously, since my doctors have always been monitoring me for Lupus.

    Two, I had a similar, larger blue blood vessel on the underside of my bicep break about 4 months ago maybe. It has healed into a red sore that is maybe a little bigger then a pencil eraser. I've tried putting Neosporin, Vitamin E, aloe, etc. on it, but it just won't heal.

    Also, i've had several sores develop in my mouth during the past week. I don't know if thats connected, but i figured i'd mention it anyway.

    Does anyone have any ideas about what might be going on, and should i have a doctor or dermatologist look at these?
