Please go to your doctor and get tested for sexually transmitted diseases as sooner diagnosis is made and treatment given, most of them are usually cured. Likely you got candida, a yeast infection, easily treatable. Other causes of red dry dots like eczema or psoriasis will not appear in a day. Hope it helps.
