Hi, my daughter had somethign that sounds similar.
we went to the doctor and he stated this was purpura, the blood vessels just below the skin broke (almost like a hicky..) this started out purple and then went to red, then yellow the brown, as the body reabsorbed this… (similar to the life cycle of a bruise).
they did not hurt, but as they healed they itched.
Dr. said with everything going on and receiving gamma that her blood vessels had had started to Leak. we are not sure what actually was the cause but if she get bit by a mosquito adn scratches it or itches too hard the result is a much smaller marking of purpura.. the initial onset was from teh knee to the ankle all the way around…
