Fungal: It's not likely that your red spots are due to a fungal infection but if they were, you could be treated with an oral antifungal drug that is carried to all the spots by the bloodstream. See your doctor.

Could Be Anything: With out an exam, it is hard to say from your description. If they have always been there and not changed, then may be small hemangiomas (blood vessels). If they are recent, they could be anything from things similar to pimples, bug bites, fungal infections (ringworm or tinea versicolor), to different types of moles or growths. Have it evaluated at your next doctor visit. Sooner, if changing.

Bug bite? Infection?: Bumps on separate parts of the body may be bug bites and/or may be small boils (skin infections; small abscesses). A visit to one's primary care doctor is needed, as bumps are very hard to describe in words. Antibiotics may be needed, if there are signs of infection. Others causes of bumps are possible, but less likely. If the bumps are mysterious-looking, a dermatologist can examine them.

Folliculitis: Spots affecting the buttocks are quite common, and usually caused by a skin condition known as folliculitis . It occurs due to irritation, infection (by bacteria or fungus), or blockage of the hair follicles, and looks like a red, bumpy rash on the skin. An affected hair needs to be pulled out and needs to be examined and cultured and according to the infection you get either mupirocin or lotrimin
