I have a rash on my upper thighs, stomach, and back. It's a whole bunch of tiny red dots--they look a lot like the red dots I sometimes get from broken capillaries (or at least that's what I've heard they're from) only some of them are pretty faint. They are not raised at all, and the ones on my back are slightly itchy but the rest aren't. Any idea what this could be? I am 13 weeks pregnant but it doesn't appear to fit the description of any pregnancy-related rashes. And it's not heat rash, it's been in the 40's & 50's here for the last week.

Maybe just extra dry skin?

Do they go away momentarily when you press on them?

If not, sounds like it could be petechia (even if I can't spell it).
