Need more info: Did the spots come on suddenly, are they associated with exposure to anything, do they itch?, do they disappear, are they warm? If they are short lived they could be what we call urticaria-a localized skin reaction that is probably not serious. A picture would help. ...Read more

This time of year we see late summer viruses which can cause this, but it also may be caused by bacterial meningitis, which is deadly. ...Read more
