Small red dots on legs, turned larger, black scabs. Prescribed keflax, hives on arms, thighs. Causes?

Two weeks ago on both legs between the knee and ankle , hundreds of what looked like mosquito bites appeared , but was not iching, these then turned larger and then black scabs appeared. My Dr prescribed antibiotics Keflax , two days latter I broke out in hives on my arms and thighs. My Dr then prescribed Predinsone 20mg/day, some of the rashes have gone away but new ones have appeared. I have taken myself off oft the antibiotics. Now today a new round of the tiny red mosquito type spots have appeared on my upper legs. Any idea what this may be?

Get complete blood count done to know your platelet count. Low platelet count because of various reason could be the cause of it.
Get back to me after the result.
Take good care
