Red spots

Hi, I am 35 year male.
I have developed a sudden eruption of  
red blood-spots (like Campbell de Morgan spots) on my upper body and also on my arms.
Very tiny raised red spots, they do not go white when I press on them.
I do not feel sick nor are these spots itchy or sore.
I have a few Campbell de Morgan spots, my new ones look the same, but just smaller.

It happened suddenly and may still be erupting.
What can this be?
I am very worried!

Thanks

Hello,
It can be due to cherry angiomas or pyogenic granuloma. Cherry angiomas are made up of clusters of tiny capillaries at the surface of the skin, forming a small round dome ("papule"), which may be flat topped.

When they first develop, they may be only a tenth of a millimeter in diameter and almost flat, appearing as small red dots. 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.

Thank you for your response.  
I went for blood tests, and it determined that I have slightly high cholesterol. I started to I cut out all fats (saturated) and refined sugars out of my diet. I have been noticed an improvement in my condition and some of the spots (the ones that did not grow to where it is slightly raised) are disappearing. I am following a healthy diet (lost 7kg) and drink apple cider vinegar 3 times a day. I also detoxed my liver.
I now do believe that cherry angiomas are not caused only by old age; rather by what you eat, to cause a buildup of toxins in the liver. I may be wrong but I know that I have learned that I can reverse the outbreak by eating healthy and drinking plenty of water.
My breakout have stopped, I will give it some time to see how many of the spots remain after a few months and then get them lasered of.
