Thanks for your query,

By the description provided it is difficult to give a clear diagnosis.

But sudden appearance of a 8 mm red spot could most probably due to the following -

1. Insect bites
2. Xanthelasma
3. Cysts -- small fluid-filled sacs.

The best way of diagnosis of this condition is by consulting a doctor for a examination and proper evaluation of your condition.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
