What causes red spots all over the body?

Hi the past couple of days i've been noticing tiny red dots all over my body, but this morning when i woke up there was a significant amount more on my body and i had large splotches on my upper thighs and on my stomach. These dots are everywhere and I have no idea what they are and they are itchy.

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if the climate is too hot there then the chances of prickly heat may be likely, if the climate is not hot then the hypersensitivity reaction would be likely, if I would be your doctor then I would treat you with the following medicines,
1) Tab Diphenhydramine three times in day
2) any soothing powder can be used to minimize the itching, take care and have nice day.
I find this answer helpful
