Infection possible: It is possible you have/had an infection, viral or otherwise. See an obstetrician to establish pregnancy care and do the initial lab work. ...Read more

See your doctor: It could be several things, from insect bites to possibly hives, viral infection, or something else. I would recommend having your physician evaluate the rash to reach a more definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

A few options: For over the counter methods try using products that have benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, alcohol, and acetone. For prescription treatments you may be prescribed antibiotics, retinoids or vitamin a derivatives, azelaic acid, oral contraceptives, or spironolactone. Always ask a dermatologist about the possible affects and the risks vs benefits of each treatment. Make sure it's best for you. ...Read more

Probably viral: You may have so called viral exanthem, a type of rash that is associated with viral infections - pretty common thing. Usually, the fever breaks in a day or two and the rash goes away soon after. If the rash worsens as well as the fever, seek medical advice. ...Read more

Are small red spots all over the body small pox?

No, not smallpox: Small pox has been eradicated, meaning it no longer exists in our daily lives. Rashes are difficult to describe in words. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine a red spots rash to see what it might be. Sometimes rashes are related to medications, viral infections, or allergies. One should bring to the doctor a list of all medications used in the month before the rash appeared. ...Read more

Rashes need doctors : There are too many possibilities for anyone to guess what is happening. If you don't feel sick, you may not need to do anything. Lots of rashes go away without treatment. But if you want a diagnosis, see a dermatologist. They know about 600 different rashes ! and even then, it can be hard to be sure. Get well soon. ...Read more
