Red Dots
For the past couple of weeks I have notice that red dots have been appearing on my skin. They don't hurt nor itch at all. It seems to be breaking out underneath my bra line/stomach area a lot. I have been working out lately. The past few days they have been break outs on my chest and my arms and stomach. They are all tiny tiny dots and aren't growing. The ones on my chest I can't see them but I can feel them all over my chest. Any advice on what they can possibly be?! Thanks

Sounds like petechiae

Hello,
It can be due to petechiael spots or hives. Petechiae are pinpoint-sized red dots under the surface of the skin. They are common after skin trauma and viral infections. They should go away in a few days. But if they persist then please consult a physician and get other causes ruled out which include allergic reaction, autoimmune diseases, thrombocytopenia, ITP or leukemias.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
