Im not sure about the red dots - could be a bacterial infection?

One thing i do know for sure, however, is you need to make some updates to your husbandry...

The basking spot should be 95-100degrees.

You should have more than a hide in the tank - iguanas need to climb - provide some branches to climb on...branches should be thicker around than the iggy.

You also need to make sure your iggy has a UVB light...you didn't mention it in your husbandry run down, so i suspect you maybe do not have one? Iguanas desperately need a UVB light to survive...you should purchase and set up a UVB bulb such as a repti-sun 10.0

Check www.anapsid.org for all you needed to know about Iguanas...there is a great caresheet you can download there...read it in its entirety! Iggys are great lizards, but they (like all reptiles) require very specific care parameters and lots of care.

Is your iggy eating currently? If so, what is she eatig?
