Chest acne rash

Common Questions and Answers about Chest acne rash

chest

Avatar f tn Maybe tmi but I use it for my chest too and it helps keep the acne away or at bay at least. So much more manageable. I hope this is helpful! Feel better soon. If you drink soda, try kicking it out of your diet if you can. The sugars contribute to acne I think. Imho. Take care!!!
Avatar n tn I have an itchy acne like rash on my chest. The rash is made up of acne like sores on the hair follicles, but unlike acne, they itch, and they are generally small without an acne like whitehead. When squezzed there is only a little puss and blood. The rash is generally confined to one small area, although it seems to have spread a bit lately. I first tried treating it by cleansing the area and putting some mild cortisone cream on it.
Avatar n tn My close friend had a hysterectamy and suffered with facial acne and hot flushes on her chest for about 3 months afterwards.
Avatar n tn You may wish to repost this in the Dermatology Forum, as this does not sound like acne vulgaris. Acne occurs on oil-rich areas of the skin such as face, chest and back. Spots on the stomach and under the arms are likely to be symptoms of a different skin condition. Mild acne on the face can be cleared with a topical retinoid gel called Differin (adapalene). This is applied at night and is generally well tolerated. Eloise.
Avatar f tn My Dr recently prescribed me tetracyline (oral and topical) for mild face and body acne. I've been on for 2 weeks and have developed a pretty severe chest and neck acne-like rash that is moving down towards the sides of my abdomen as well and shows no signs of improvement, so it's made my acne worse...not better. Is it normal for it to get worse before it gets better? Should I stop taking the medication? How long does it take for this medication to work typically? Any help is appreciated.

Avatar n tn Today i went to the tanning bed and now on my left shoulder where some of my acne is, there is a rash. Is this from the tanning bed? IF so, how do i treat this? Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering from a peculiar rash on my upper chest for about a year and a half. Initially i thought it was acne (as i had suffered from this on my face), however it looks more like a rash, almost like hives in apperance, and does not respond to acne medication. It is made up of several red bumps about 1mm in length. They occur prodominatly on my chest. I went to the doctor when i first got this problem and was prescribed some antibiotics and some aqeous cream.
Avatar m tn In June I met this guy I was the top (safe) and did everything else. Two weeks later I break out in a rash, back chest upper arms and face. From photos on the net and from my Dr. Diagnosis, it's folliculitis. I didn't ask to be tested for HIV, because I've been scared to know. However it's been 3 months and I'm still breaking out in what is not acne. Your thoughts on whether I've contracted something from my descriptions.
Avatar m tn 10 days ago I had a couple of white dots near my eye area, and now it has progressed all the way down my neck, chest, and stomach! They are red and they are all over the place. But they are not on my lower body!

Avatar n tn I will also have a red mark in the middle of my chest. This rash will last up to 20 to 30 minutes and then dissapear. It starts out as a tingling feeling that ends up itching and burning(like a sun burn). It is also not a uniform rash. Its somewhat scatterted all over my face and neck and in the middle of my chest. I had this same rash appear mysteriously around 6 yrs ago during the winter. If it was somewhat of a cold day my face would develop this same rash. It was brought on by the cold air.
Avatar n tn 9 days ago, I developed an itchy rash that looks like acne. It is on my right shoulder and my chest next to my right armpit. My general practitioner has no idea what it is, but did prescribe Valtrex thinking maybe shingles. I have been taking the Valtrex for 5 days. I can't see my dermatologist for another 4 weeks. About 4 days after noticing the rash, it has started to spread.

HIS EYES DUE TO THE RASH ARE STARTING TO SWELL AND BUMPS ARE STARTING TO LEAK FLUID .. DOES THIS SOUND LIKE BABY ACNE ????
Avatar f tn About a year ago, I developed a RASH on my chest that is similar looking to acne in that it has red spots with tiny, very superficial white heads. Since this was the first rash breakout I mistook it for acne and used an acne spot treatment (benzyl peroxide 2.5%) The next morning my skin was itchy and extremely irritated, and I realized it was a rash and not pimples and the benzyl peroxide irritated it a lot. I then used calamine and benedryl topical lotion with little results.

192918 tn?1199454779 Is this still baby acne and no cause for concern or could it be a rash that I should worry about? On a good note - it doesn't seem to bother her at all...
Avatar f tn She woke up this morning with red bumps all over her face and a few on her chest and back. It appears to be a rash, but they look like pimples. This has happened a couple of times before , probably the last time approximately 6 months ago. The rash does not itch and it takes about 5-6 days for it to dry up. Her face also has some redness . Any help appreciated.
Avatar n tn About two weeks into this pregnancy I broke out like big time all down my chest and arms my entire face and neck. It gotten a little better with switching face washes and other than my face and neck I'm almost clear but...now it itches like crazy and when I itch it gets worse! Anybody else have itchy acne and how did you treat it?
Avatar n tn Acne Vulgaris commonly occurs on the face, chest and back. If over the counter remedies prove to be of limited benefit, see your doctor. He can prescribe an effective gel such as Differin 0.1% (adapalene) or Retin-A. A course of oral antibiotics such as Oxytetracycline may also be indicated. The spots under your arm are caused by trauma to the hair follicles whilst shaving. To prevent this always use a fresh razor and shave in a lukewarm shower or bath.
