Thanks for the question.

I will be able to answer your query better if you could please provide some more details about the red dots you are referring to.

1. Since how long have you had this issue?
2. Is there any itching?
3. Do you remember how these started?
4. Is there a white pus point on these red dots?
5. Do you have any swelling/redness around these dots?
6. Did you have fever?
7. Do you consume alcohol, if yes, how much and how frequently?
8. Do you have high blood pressure or diabetes?
9. Do you have any other symptom?
10. How is the weather condition in your locality?
Please also take pictures of these red dots and upload them along with answers to the above questions so that I can guide you better.

Meanwhile apply a soothing aloe cream/an antibiotic cream such as mupirocin on the affected part.

Awaiting your response.

Ive got these little dots all over my body, but especially on my hands, arms, ankles, insides of upper legs and shoulders. They are very small and have the same color as my skin. When I start scratching them they itch even more and I just can't stop.. What is this ?

My son had a small red itchy bump at the edge of his bottom a few days ago. We thought it was a bug bite. He scratched it and it got bigger and scabbed over. Now it is itching more, has a red area around it, and he has a few more similar bumps near it (also itchy). No other bumps on his body. Any ideas?

My 4 year old son was stung on the top of his ear this afternoon. That area has turned purple. Is this normal? Or a sign that he might be allergic? I don't know if I should take him to the doctor or just ice it. What do you recommend?

Thanks in advance!

Dear Doctor,
Early morning I sneeze continuously almost 1-2 minutes.after that I feel very uncomfort and my nostrils gets blocked.
Only after 2-3 hours I could be able to have the normal position. What is all about this and what should I do to get rid off from it.
