Little red dots all over body. Change in place, temperature difference. Is it heat rash?

Hello, I had a urine infection over a week ago and am taking antibiotics ( Ciprofloxacin ) for it. I had a bad cold and cough and mild fever (37.8) for a few days but am feeling ok today. I had Ibuprofen and paracetamol for my cold. Today when I woke up I has little red dots all over my body. not on the face but starting from the neck down. No itching or burning, just the red spots. I am 35 years old and had chicken pox 9 years ago. I just arrived in Germany from Canada 2 days ago. The temperature difference was about 25 degrees. I am wondering if its a heat rash. I will appreciate if you can reply soon. Thanks and regards.

Hello.You could be having a drug reaction,which is very common when multiple drugs are taken during infection.Another possibility is an allergy of skin blood vessels,what we call vasculitis.Check with your doctor asap,further continuation of the offending drug would be catastrophic.
