Potential causes of non-itchy red spots
Birthmarks: Birthmarks are colored spots on our skin that are present at birth. Sometimes these blemishes can be red in color. When this is the case, they are usually a “vascular birthmark”. These types of birthmarks are caused by abnormal blood vessels in the skin.
Acne: Acne is an extremely common skin condition that can range from mild to severe. The condition usually presents itself as skin bumps that often become red or swollen.
Angiomas: Angiomas are skin growths that can occur anywhere on the body. They are caused by blood vessels that have clumped together and appear as red domed bumps, also known as papules, on or beneath the skin.
Keratosis pilaris: Keratosis pilaris is a harmless skin condition that occurs from the overproduction of a protein called keratin. It causes small, hard bumps around hair follicles, especially on the thighs, buttocks and upper arms.
Boils: A boil is a skin infection of the hair follicle or oil gland. It is usually a firm red bump that can often be filled with pus. They usually go away after they burst open and the pus or liquid has drained.
Allergic reaction: One of the most common reasons for red skin spots is rashes that occur from allergic reactions. The reaction could be to food, pollen or other allergens in the air, cosmetics, skincare, laundry detergent or a whole host of other irritants. A doctor can perform a patch test to reveal what allergens trigger a reaction on your skin.
Heat rash: Heat rash is a result of sweat trapped in clogged pores and appears as red bumps that may or may not feel tingly or itchy. This is a common condition in hot, humid weather and usually goes away once the skin temperature has cooled.
Pityriasis Rosea: Pityriasis rosea is a rash caused by a virus that usually lasts from six to twelve weeks. It is characterized by a larger, “mother” patch, accompanied by smaller “daughter” patches around it. It is usually pink or red in color and may be raised and scaly in texture.
