I have small, very small pin prick sized red dots on my torso, ranging from the pelvic to the breast bone, any help on what this could be? i went to the doctors last week for a sour throat but they said its nothing to worry about(the throat not the dots) could this have anything to do with it?
It likely seems to be a viral exanthema which can be associated with a viral sore throat. Sometimes the exanthema goes away in a few days and occasionally it may take a few weeks. You shouldnât worry much if itâs not causing any other trouble like itching. Local application of calamine lotion does help in improving the itching. Usually, we just wait for the exanthema to go away. I sincerely hope that helps. Best Wishes.
