Pic worth 1000 words: A digital pic of the spots would be much easier to diagnose. They could be anything from insect bites to an allergic skin rash.

Could be : A lot of things. Hard to say without being able to touch, feel and see it. It could be a swollen lymph node associated with what looks like an infection you are being treated for, it could be a fatty tumor, a clogged follicle under the skin. If it doesn't go away a week or so after you finish the ciprofloxacin, go back and get it checked out, sooner if it hurts. ...Read more
