Hi, I want to ask why my skin appeared red rashes about 3 days ago. The size is small like pimples and it appeared on my leg, hands and other parts of body. Is it because of alergy on soup or detergent or insect or other factors? I dont use any type of lotion except body Wash and detergent. So can you help me to give opinion and what type of cream or medicine should I take?
