Detailed Answer:

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health query.

Can you please upload a photo of the red spots so I can have a look at them and evaluate? You can upload the photo at the reports section in this page.

Also, please give me some more information:
- Since when do you have the red spots?
- Are then itchy? Are they painful when you touch them?
- How did they started? Have they grown up?
- Do you have other in your body?
- Have you used any medicine for them since now?

All this information is necessary to understand more about your problem so I can advise more accurately and be more of help.

Brief Answer:
Possible fungal infection. Please still see if you can upload the photo.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for the follow-up question.

It is difficult to decide the diagnoses of something without seeing it and without having a full description of it.

I think it may either be a contact dermatitis or a fungal infection.

Please for now apply a cream like Clotrimazole 2% or Lamisil 1% twice/day for 1-2 weeks and let me know how is it doing.
When you find a camera, please upload those photos so I can have a look.
