red spots on my feet

Can anybody answer my question ?
About one hour ago I noticed about 40 small red spots on each of my feet, mostly around the side of my feet and ankles. They are approximately 1-2mm in diameter and appear as a slight bump however they are not itchy at all.
I did have the same thing happen about 1 month ago and they just all cleared after 3-4 days.
I don't believe it's a bug bite or anything externally , I think it's more like a blood disorder or something and it's an internal reaction to lack of iron or whatever.
Can anybody suggest anything as it seems worse than last time.

TIA.

Hello,
I am not sure but have you got petechaie ruled out. 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.

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 doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hi Dr Bhupinder ,

Firstly, thank you for your reply and opinion on my red spots on my feet post.
I have good news , the red spots are 90% cleared ... as in fading away.. I can still see them but they are getting lighter in colour as each day passes.
I don't believe they are Petechiae as these are not pin-sized spots .. they are 2mm in diameter , much larger than a pin-size.  Also , these spots are not as a rich red blood colour appears as i seen some pictures on a webite. They look exactly the same as if an insect had bitten me all over the ankles ... as in red spots with a bump ..but not as in a real blood red. I tried to search the internet for pictures that would match however I could not find very much info. Anyway .. as I mentioned they are almost gone so I am sure they will clear by 2-4 days more. I tend to think they are a reaction to some type of food .. but I just cannot pin point which food. And again , thank you kindly for your message.
Regards,
feetredspots  ( clearing )
