Strep related: There are at least two forms of rash associated with strep. One is related to a toxin released by living strep germs, typically flat, sand papery and rosey. Anther is a hive like eruption (bumps) that can be associated with it. There are a few STD associated rashes, but what you describe is not how they appear.

I have small light red spots on my hands and feet it feels like im stepping on hot sand or like little needles are poking my feet. What could this be?

The foot symptoms: Are that of neuropathy. I am not sure if the red spots on your hand are related or a separate issue. Either way, a doctors visit is prudent to deal with the neuropathy and help find its cause and provide a treatment.

Could be hives: Hives can come up very quickly, especially when you scratch. But there are many other causes of "red spots" - without more information it's hard to narrow it down. Your best option is to let a dermatologist look at them and tell you for sure what is going on.

Red spots on palms: Some of the causes of red spots on your palms include dyshidrotic eczema (pompholyx), contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, fungal infection, psoriasis, syphilis, and rocky mountain spotted fever, a tick-borne illness that can cause rash on the palms. You really should be evaluated by a doctor.

HIVES (urticaria): Hives 'can come and go randomly' and if chronic may not have a discrete cause in >50% of cases. Allegra (fexofenadine) (or generic fexofenidine) 180mg a day may help.

Hi! Two red spots appeared on my hand yesterday. They're flat and not itchy. They don't hurt either. Do you know what these could be from?

No one could: Without a lot more detail. However, most such things are simple bug bites or minor injuries that go away without treatment. Not worth a lot of worrying!

Skin irritation..: Plastic glowed can create a lots of moisture after 2-3 hours. Most likely it is reaction to inner glide heat and humidity. Wash your hands with mild soap and put on good nonalergebic moisturizer - Like " Vitamin A+D ointment (pharmacy ban section). If you use gloves - take breaks after hour or less. If any rash, redness, pain worsen see your Doc

I got 10 red spots on the back of my hand. The first time I got them was a week ago and had them twice since then only last for am hour. Not itchy?

Unusual: Fleeting nonitchy red spots may be due to transient dilatation of tiny blood vessels in the back of the hand which would be more blotchy. Hives or insect bites or allergic reactions last longer than an hour and are itchy. Did exposure to a change in temperature or something that came in contact with your hand play a role?

Red spots on hands, wrists and arm. Help! What could it be?

Need more info: How big are they? Do they itch? How long have you had them? As much as more info may help me help you, though, the best thing for skin problems is to have them looked at. See your doctor, or go to an urgent care if worrisome.
