What is this?
Hi. I have found little red spots on my skin (Stomach, back and legs). They look like little pimples, just red, and itch a lot. What could this be, and should I go to my GP??

Dear Ollie

Thank you for visiting

Please be so kind as to advise me about the following:

1. Duration of rash
2. Any viral symptoms accompanying this rash?
3. Did you start with any new medication?

On receipt of your reply, the matter will receive my further attention.

It does, however, sound like you have Meascles. I would suggest that you take oral anti-histamines and use Calomine Lotion for the itching of the skin.

Kind regards
