These tiny red spots are very common and normally nothing to worry about. You should get checked out by your doctor if it is concerning you though, especially if you are experiencing any pain, discomfort or difficulty.
These small spots could be a symptom of spots and rashes that are collectively called Petechiae. Petechiae can cause tiny red spots under the skin as well as pin point red rash symptoms and tiny red skin spots. It is a term used to describe small skin eruptions that are 3mm or less. These can develop slowly over time but can also suddenly appear. They normally measure at about 1-3mm and are usually a result of broken capillary blood vessels, also known as a minor haemorrhage.
These symptoms should always be investigated by a doctor to rule out more worrisome reasons. Petechiae is most commonly caused by an array of reasons from excessive vomiting to just coughing, crying or as a result of a virus to being a symptom of vasculitis or thrombocytopenia which are much more serious. A doctor should be seen to rule out such reasons or to give required, immediate treatment to prevent any serious and permanent damage.
Petechiae can be triggered as a side effect to many medications. These include Acetaminophen (Tylenol), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), Carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Tegretol), Chlorothiazide (Chlotride, Diuril), Cimetidine (Tagamet), Heparins such as low molecular weight heparin, Phenytoin (Di-Phen, Dilantin), Rifampin (Rifadin, Rimactane) and linezolid (Zyvox).
Questions asked by a doctor when investigating these spots may include ‘what medication are you taking?’, ‘when did you first notice the spots?’ and ‘have you had any physical trauma?’.
These spots are usually nothing to worry about and can even be caused just by sleeping at an unusual angle. This does not mean however you should not be checked out by a doctor. Self diagnosis through the Internet is not always successful.

This happens when veins erupt internally. It would be highly recommended that you visit a dermatologist and general physician for this problem.
