This is Dr. David

can you upload a clear photo of the red spots?

usually when you wake up, you can see red spots on your body from where your body has been pressing on the skin when you sleep

usually these red spots go away in a few hours

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

that looks like an allergic reaction also called contact dermatitis.

new detergents or new soaps can sometimes do this.

or it could be eczema

you might need to use steroid creams to your skin to help

you can try 1% hydrocortisone cream which is over the counter

or you might need prescription steroid creams from your doctor.

have you started to use new soap or detergents in your wash or your shower?
