Is there a picture of the skin rash caused by west niles virus? I have 3 round spots that look like cigarette burn and each one has a few extremely small red dots that after 2 weeks have now gotten as big as the original one.

Rash: Your description does not sound like west nile virus. It is difficult to guess based on your description but lyme disease could fit. You need to see an eye doctor as soon as possible for further evaluation and to ensure proper treatment.

Mild CRPS. Sympt- burning pain, swelling, redness, red dots on skin, sensitivity. Amitriptyline, physio- referred pain dr. Does mild CRPS worsen?

Can be challenging: However, most cases of CRPS encountered in my practice are far from mild. Have you had a diagnostic sympathetic block to confirm? Also, amitriptyline is rarely an effective drug in CRPS, and drugs such as Lyrica, Savella, (milnacipran) Cymbalta, work far better. Please confirm your diagnosis via second opinion.

Many red dots on skin after a back massage?

Stone or suction?: Was it a hot stone massage? The hot stones can leave red marks which resolve in a day or two. Or did they apply little jar-like doodads that impart suction to the underlying skin, leaving marks that look like giant hickeys? Those resolve too, but it takes longer, and is somewhat harder to explain to your friends.

Red dots on skin but not itchy? Could it still be allergic? Or some infection?

Rash: Medical advice is difficult to provide for conditions such as rashes because visual inspection is so important to a physician's diagnosis. The distribution of the rash on the body is also important information. The best advise I can give is consult a physician for a history and physical examination.
