Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The red spots after the workout or steam not associated with pain or itching is most likely to be due to allergy.It is just possible that some substance you are using or some fabric like towel might be causing this kind of allergy. Take an antiallergic and apply a steriod ointment.
