Red itchy spots on my belly
I suddently have some red itchy spots on my belly after a dinner last week. I never have food allergy and all I ate were pork, beef and a little bit of shrimp.  
Those red spots increase to a dime size after I scratched them and become dark red if I leave them alone.  They have been there for a week and seems to increasing especially around those I scratch them.  

I would like to know what they are and what should I do with them?

Thanks,

They sound like blocked follicles.  I doubt the food had anything to do with them, but the scratching certainly didn't help.  I advise you to apply bacitracin or neosporin ointment on them daily and otherwise leave them alone.  If they're still there in 10 days--I doubt they will be--show them to a doctor.

Best.
