My brother has scattered, non-itchy red dots on his arms and legs and has had this for nearly two weeks. Cause for concern? Why does he have them?

I woke up yesterday with tiny red itchy dots on my arms and legs. I woke up today and found even more on my legs. Should I be scared?
Bedbugs: It sounds like something is biting you. It could be many different things, but the most likely culprit is bedbugs.
