What causes red spots throughout the body?
Kindly upload another picture.
I understand your concern. From the images you have uploaded it looks like the red spots with a center indentation is a molluscum wart, which is usually caused by a virus. In such case, freezing, curettage or blistering solutions is the usual treatment.
The fact that this rash appears in unexposed areas and the indentation and crusting makes me think of scabies, which seems to be a more plausible possibility, given that your husband is experiencing the same thing. If this is the case, a one off treatment with permethrin cream is the usual treatment, but this depends on the area you live in.
However I am not totally convinced, so I would need to see another picture of the rash in order to get a better idea. So please upload another picture so I may be able to give you a more accurate answer. In the mean time, try to not scratch your skin with unclean hands, as this usually leads to a secondary skin infection further complicating the rash.
I hope this helps.
Wishing you good health and all the best.
Thank you for uploading more pictures. As it is quite an unusual rash I needed to see more of it in order to get an idea.
First of all, I can confidently say that It does not look like a rash caused by an inside reaction. The spots look very much like insect bites or scabies.
Perhaps flea bites? I have seen a patient in my practice with a similar rash that turned out to be flea bites.
I recommend you stay away from any animals who may be a source of fleas, change clothes and bed sheets. Use Benadryl for relief.
If no change, then by all means see a dermatologist for further investigation.
I hope this helps.
Wishing you good health and all the best
