Dermatologist Questions Rashes

I am suddenly noticing red spots all over my thigh. What could these be?

I am a 34 year old woman and I suddenly have observed red spots all over my thighs. Although these spots are not painful, they are constantly increasing. What do these spots indicate? Please help and advice.

This is tough to answer without a picture. It could range from eczema, Psoriasis, or other inflammatory skin conditions to hives to infectious or vascular conditions. This needs to be seen.

These possibly could be something called cherry angiomas, which are in the category of benign growths. They tend to appear with age and can be hereditary. They are not dangerous, but you should have a dermatologist verify this.

Go to a dermatologist. GPs only give you cortisone but they will appear again after a while.
Diagnosis cannot be accurately made simply by remote description of conditions by the patient especially skin conditions. Best advise is to show it to an experienced dermatologist.
Without seeing, I can just guess, maybe Angioma.
Most likely, they are a condition called cherry angiomas, but best to see a board certified dermatologist in your area. Try the website for the American Academy of Dermatology for information.
