Well, to be honest, these dots don't do anything but sit there- I'm just curious as to what they are if something else could be CAUSING them. The dots are red and pinprick sized. They're not raised and they don't itch. They show up over night then are gone again and are surely enough back in a couple days. Also, they only show up in a certain area. They are always on my right hand and forearm, no where else. Sometimes they are more clustered together, other times they are more random looking. Also, they're not consistent in size, some are larger than others but they're all very small. What could be causing them?
