I have these skin bumps on my arm. It's not itchy. What is it?

I've had these skin bumps for a week now.  They're not big, not itchy, but they appear to spread slowly.   I've been to the doctors and they said its allergies and gave me medicine, but I wanna know if this thing has a name.  It only popped out randomly, but I could think of a few reasons why.  Maybe from me eating eggs for breakfast for a week, using dirty dumbbells, hot and humid environment, not showering after workouts, or stress.  I have no symptoms as of this moment other than the bumps.  Photo for reference.

Hello and welcome to the forum.  I am glad you are visiting your doctor. I think that is most important.  So, your doctor feels you are having an allergic reaction. Is this a dermatologist you saw?  And what medication did they give you?  Is it working?  

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 products, laundry detergent, or a whole host of other irritants. A doctor can perform a patch test to reveal which allergens trigger a reaction on your skin.  I think that would be wise to ask for so that you can find out what triggers it.  It wouldn't really have a name as a diagnosis other than allergic reaction (since that is the question you asked).  This has never occurred before, however?  

Here's a full list of other possibilities.https://www.medicinenet.com/non-itchy_red_spots_20_skin_disorders/article.htm

Hi thanks for the reply!
- No, just my regular GP
- No, Celestamine (oral medicine) and Diprogenta (ointment)
- I think so. They're not as visible as they were before after using the medicine for three days.
- I've had a skin type allergic reaction WAY back in my childhood, but I think that that is different from this one.  This just came out of nowhere, but I suspect the trigger is my current change in lifestyle, plus the objects I touched before this happened.
