Doctor to examine: Rashes and spots are difficult to describe in words. Generalized spots that don't itch may be part of an infection (some viruses cause this). "Generalized" means on multiple parts of the body. Sometimes, spots have unknown causes. A pediatrician or family medicine doctor can evaluate to find a diagnosis and treatment. Bluish or purplish spot are blood spots and would need blood testing right away.
