These small red spots stared to appear around 2 to 3 weeks ago now. I was given hydrocortisone cream by a pharmacist and have now tried two different strengths (0.1% and 1%) and both have been ineffective. My back (pictured) is the worst affected area but the tops of my legs, arms and top of my chest also have affected areas.

Struggling to get a doctors appointment, so while i wait for one I was just wondering if anyone had an idea of what it might be?

Never had any skin issues previously, and haven't started using any new products.

Thanks in advance.

I am sorry that I can't identify these spots but hope you get a proper GP appt soon especially as hyrdocortisone 1% is not effective. Have you eaten anything unusual? Or it may be something that you use for laundry or bathing where the formulation has changed?
