However, when you see something there that you haven’t quite seen before, it’s time to put on your inspector hat and coat because it’s time to investigate. Listed below are 7 of the most probable causes of red spots on skin:

1. Allergic Reaction

Allergic Reaction

It could be dust mites, pollution or food allergy that’s causing the blood to rush to the surface of your skin in an attempt to fight off an allergen. In which case, you have to recall what you may have put on your skin or what food you may have eaten that caused your skin to become irritated. Don’t go anywhere near it for now.

2. Heat Rash

Commonly seen when the skin is unable to breathe from heat or clothing that’s too tight, heat rash should disappear when temperature around you improves.
