DD1 has a paed appointment 22 May - i didnt request it, and the last paed left it that we would just let them know if we needed them to see her.

It might be to discuss blood results (we suspect DD1 of fragile X based on dysmorphic facial features tbh).

It might be to discuss something that's come back in the bloods? (thyroid, iron, fragil x, chromosome, and a whole bunch of other stuff iirc)

It might just be a routine review.

In any case, we will ask them about purple mottling while we're there, and put the issue to bed one way or the other.

Thank you to everyone who replied here and on the other thread. xx

pretty sure LR is what's on the backs of my arms.They are mottled purple all the time, sometimes it warms up to pink but usually just stays lacy and purple.

Cutis Marmorata is a mild and benign form of LR.

LR describes the vascular response that produces the mottled appearance of the skin, then there are sub-categories according to the cause. With CM it's a fairly common vascular response in healthy individuals.

Livido reticularis. Common in DC's with Hypermobility. I have it, DD does, DS2 has it really badly, as does DS3...
