Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of red spots resemble acne on the back area most often caused by acne, folliculitis, miliaria (prickly heat), tinea versicolor (phlegm), scabies (scabies), or other infections. It could also, red spots on the back appear due to other triggers, such as contact dermatitis, insect bites, nevus (moles), benign or malignant tumors on the skin, and so on. This condition is not always related to the history of chickenpox you have experienced before.
After recovering from chickenpox, it can also appear red spots that occur due to reactivation of the virus that causes chickenpox. In the medical realm, this condition is called shingles (chickenpox). However, often, shingles due to shingles, in addition to appear reddish, also contain fluid, itchy, painful, and appear in groups in an area of the skin that is innervated by certain nerve fibers. If you view from the information you mentioned, chances are your complaint is not a result of shingles.
Even so, if you feel very disturbed by the spots that appear on your back, it never hurts to check back to your doctor or dermatologist huh. That way, the doctor can certainly give you the best treatment according to the cause.
In the meantime, we urge you to do the following:
Do not pluck or force-pick the spots that appear
Take a clean bath, clean your back area using antiseptic soap
Do not use tight and dirty clothes
Do not carelessly provide treatment for spots that appear without doctor's advice
Do not exchange clothes or personal items with others
Hope this helps ...
