Red spot on the skin baby and mom

We recently had made a hiking trip and the next day on my skin and my baby (4 months old boy) appeared some red spots. The spots are distributed all over the body, they are not localized, the legs are not that affected... My husband does not have these spots although he carried the baby. We had made a visit to our doctor and he sent us to a local dermatologist but he didn't know what is exactly. He said maybe is a rash or some insect bite... He examined the spots with some magnifier device that had light in it, and said that the blood vessels are visible and are dilated... or something like that. He didn't prescribed anything and said to wait a few days to see what happens. If anyone need better pictures i can make more...
