Best Answer

These sound like petechiae, which are hemorrhages of tiny capillaries under the skin. You can sometimes get them on your neck from coughing hard or vomiting forcefully or sometimes they will appear on your arm after having your blood drawn where the tourniquet was placed. They are usually harmless, however, if you are showing signs of illness and the petechiae show up for no reason, it may be a sign of something more serious, so it is always best to check with your physician.
