Thanks for posting your query.

The most common cause for such red bumps all over and muscle pain is viral exanthematous fever. More so, if it is of acute onset and associated with mild fever.

Please consider taking anti-histamines like Zyrtec 10mg at bed time for the next few days. This is available over the counter in US.

You can also apply calamine lotion on the red bumps to improve their healing and for a soothing effect.

I would be in a better position in suggesting you if I could look at the appearance of the red bumps.

You have a feature to upload the reports / image by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your queries better.

Awaiting your response.
