What are quarter size red spots all over body?

Needs a Dr. to check: Rashes and spots are difficult to describe in words.

Fibro Tx: Jaci, fibromyalgia, like many other skin disorders, can be the consequence of conditioning from earlier life experiences.

Possibilities: It sounds like this could be ringworm- usually this happens in perineum or areas where skin rubs against skin, and can be more diffuse. Another thought is impetigo, another rash that can spread among people in close contact. Best for your md to see. ...Read more

You can take a histamine eg allegra, claritin, zyrtec, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) etc for the itch but you may need prescription for topical steroids from your physician.
