I have been told I have Schamberg's Purpura. I'm 63. It is mainly on my lower legs and comes and goes but never goes away completely. It started on the tops of my feet but cleared up completely after a few years only to return on my lower legs. The bright red dots do fade eventually, like bruises but are replaced by more almost immediately in other places. I'm not overweight, very healthy and keep very active. Nothing seems to affect the rate of occurrence of the dots or clear them up. My doctor says there is no treatment and that I just have leaky veins as I have thread veins. Has anyone any advice or self help for keeping the dots to a minimum? Are there any effective treatments at all?
