What do red bumps on the body indicate?

I had unprotected sex exactly 7 days ago. Ever since then I have counted five red bumps all over my body. One on my left under arm, 2 on my waist, 1 on top of my hand, and 1 on my arm. They do not hurt or itch. Should I be afraid ? What does this mean ?

No, you do not have to worry because few infections can cause rashes but not so severe. I think you are too thoughtful and have counted those rashes also. I know it is good to be careful but being over careful also is bad.

We need some infection to go on its own rather than taking antibiotics. If it is getting more, then kindly contact us again and take the relevant antibiotic course.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
