Case photos are always very helpful for articles like this. Could some be made available?
Agreed - the caption is nonsensical as the author hasn't used hyphens - I'm removing the photo until a more meaningful caption can be added.
Herbs, foods, and vitamins, as well as drugs, can cause petechia
A few examples include
antiplatelet OR platelet AND Blueberries OR Cocoa OR Curcumin "stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots." http://umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/herb/turmeric Fish oil OR EPA and DHA OR Garlic OR Ginkgo OR Green tea catechins (ECGC) OR Saint John's Wort OR Vitamin E
Silymarin "Milk thistle may cause ... decreased platelets ... " Mayo Clinic http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/milk-thistle/safety/hrb-20059806
All of these are beneficial in small doses, perhaps in part because of their antiplatelet effect (like aspirin). The dose makes the poison.
