    Sound like these could be spots caused by bites. Been doing much outdoorsy stuff recently? 

    Bites behave a different to spots and typically pretty noticable even as they start to fade.

    Red spots on the skin are a common medical complaint. When the spots occur in outbreaks, they are sometimes termed rashes. Rashes can occur due to infections of the skin, disseminated infections, allergic reactions, or irritations of the skin.

    When a red bump or rash is flat, it is medically known as a macule. When the red spot is raised, it is known as a papule. Erythema is the medical term for redness of the skin.

    This may well be just a rash from a plant or household product you’ve come in contact with, but there are several serious diseases of which this could be an early symptom. Have it checked out by your primary care doctor before going any further. Try some hydrocortisone cream in the meantime for comfort.
