Wide Differential: The possibilities are quite numerous. Breifly, infection (fungal, bacterial, viral, parasite), reactive (arthropod trauma, drug eruption, contact dermatitis), neoplastic (benign or malignant), miscellaneous. Nice thing is, most maculopapular rashes are self limited. See your doc if it doesn't get better or it becomes annoying.
