Dermatologist 's  Response

Sudden appearance of such red lesions can lead us to various common reasons like eczema or infections.

Leukemia is a very rare cause of such a presentation.
You should not be so worried about these.

You can see a dermatologist for proper assessment.
You might require antibiotic cream if it is an infection or a topical steroid for eczematous changes.

Hope it helps
