Hello Yudi, Thank you for the question.
Red spots on the body can be caused by a variety of health conditions that cannot be detected without a doctor's examination. Red spots on the body can be caused by:
Hives and prickly heat have similar symptoms. Hives are an itchy red or white skin rash that can spread to other parts of the body of varying sizes. This rash can be itchy and sore. Usually hives are triggered by consumption of foods that contain high protein (eg eggs, seafood), exposure to cold air, insect bites, and consumption of certain drugs. On the other hand, prickly heat also has the same symptoms, namely the appearance of a red skin rash in the form of small spots that can be itchy and stinging / sore. This condition is caused by sweat trapped in the sweat glands due to a blockage in the sweat glands. Prickly heat is hot air, certain physical activities, and prolonged bed rest.
If these symptoms are very disturbing, please check with your doctor to determine the cause of your symptoms. Doctors need to see the appearance of this skin rash to be able to ascertain the cause and determine the next treatment. If it is caused by hives, then the most important thing is to prevent the trigger as well as prickly heat, you are advised to avoid exposure to hot air, keep the skin cool, and wear clothes loose.
In the meantime, avoid scratching the itchy area. Use the calamine lotion you have on hand to help relieve itching.
I hope this helps.
