I have these tiny red dots that have formed on the top of my feet and on my legs near my ankles. They look like tiny pin pricks they don't hurt or itch?

In brief: Petechiae?

Rashes are always a bit of a diagnostic dilemma, but one possibility for this rash is caused a low platelet count.
Are you having any new bruising, nose bleeds, or gum bleeding? Platelets are important for the appropriate clotting of blood, and when your platelet count is low, you can get this typical petechial rash. If it spreads or appears elsewhere, a platelet check might be warranted.
