insect bites: including one of the most common causes of red spots on the skin, ranging from mosquito bites, ants, pet fleas, bed mites, to spiders can cause these complaints. In addition, complaints can also be accompanied by pain and swelling around the insect bite area.
Contact dermatitis: a reaction that occurs when the skin comes in contact with an irritating substance or substance that can trigger allergies.
Bacterial infections: Generally the symptoms of bacterial infections of the skin are small red bumps. However, these lumps can develop into larger
so many possible causes to ensure you have to do a direct examination by a dermatologist by looking at the condition of the rash and symptoms that arise if needed will be carried out additional checks according to indications such as allergic tests, skin scrapings. etc., the doctor will provide treatment according to the cause.
