It would be prudent to see your PCP who can examine you and investigate the cause of these red dots by a STD panel,blood test for Herpes (HSV1 and 2) and fungal infections.The treatment will be specific to the cause found.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
