follow up to the one i posted last week about red spots and rashes

saw the doctor today and he said the small red spots are blood spots and don't worry, told him about my hand being painful in the morning and stiff so he is going to do blood test for RF, ANA ,ACA and clotting i think that is what he said it was for to see what my clotting level is now and to check idf i don't have rheumatoid going in my hands

love to you all for you help
