tiny pink/red hard-dry pimples (?)

I have these tiny pink/red hard-dry pimples (?), mostly behind my neck, but also some around my chest area.  They seem to come in pairs (2 by 2), though there are also single ones.  They are itchy when they first appear, but that quickly subsides.

I have seen doctors and they have said they are not insect bites, but are clueless on what the cause may be...viral...allergy...

Should I be concerned?  Could they be bug bites? (though usually when I get bit by mosquitos, they are big, soft and itchy).

From the symptoms it can be sweat dermatitis, heat rash, allergies, eczema or scabies bites. Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating.Try keeping the skin free of sweat as far as possible. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort.For the itching antihistaminics like Benadryl or Claritin can be taken.

If the symptoms persist then please get an evaluation done from a dermatologist.

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.
