What you describe sounds like petechiae
which is the red pinpoint spots (1-2 mm) that results from intradermal hemorrage (bleeding under the skin) from small vessels in the skin.
The red dots/spots can look like a rash
, are usually flat to the touch, and don't blanch or fade when you press on them. Petechiae can be a sign of a number of conditions that can be serious, so please have it checked.
