Common Questions and Answers about Rash on chest


Avatar n tn About 2 weeks ago I got a rash on my chest. The rash itself looks like reddish-pink spots on my chest, some darker then others, and as big as about 2 cms and as small as a dot. They appear in one spot go away, and show up on another. It is primarily on my chest and a little on my traps. What type of rash does this sound like? I did some research on the internet and it resembles a maculopapular rash. What could cause this type of rash?
Avatar f tn Just wondering have any of you had a rash on your chest. Ive just noticed this today. It's not itchy really. I was just wondering is this normal or something that I should go to my doctor with.
Avatar n tn I am a 24y/o female and have a rash on my upper chest. I have had a cat for the last 20 years (I recently put her down) and my housemate just recently got a new one (about 2 days before the rash broke out). The rash is red and inflamed and I am unsure if this could be an allergic reaction to the cat. I have not gotten a rash anywhere else on my body. There are no rashes on other places on my body where the cat has touched. Also, the rash has no puss or blister like qualities.
Avatar m tn The latest symptom has been a sort of rash on my chest, starting in the middle and working its way outward. It is only painful in the center of the rash. Also, the rash is difficult to define as per borders and has a few red bumps fer and far between. My question is, could this or is this related to my facial herpes? Should I be going to my GP or wait it out? Unsure..
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 f tn m a 20 year old female, who has recently been put on cipralex for panic attacks and anxiety. About a week ago I came out in a strange red rash on my chest. I have also been experiencing blurring vision and lightheadedness several times a day. Usually when I wake up in the morning I have had quite bad headaches which usually pass within an hour of being awake. I'm worrying whether this could be the medication or something else. Should I go to a doctor or is it anxiety related?

Avatar n tn Hello, My brother has a rash on his chest and underarm 4 days ago. At first it was only small,red, itchy bumps and over the last few days it has turned into *****, scabby welts. He says they hurt more than itch now. Like a blister. He has been taking cellcept for over a year for an eye condition ( for uveitis). He also was taking care of a puppy for a friend. Could it be from one of those things?
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.
Avatar n tn In looking at the images on the net of tinea, I do have spots of it but it is not what the rash on my chest and face is. The rest of the rash is not circular and does not respond to any of the creams or medications given to me. This rash is just a general redness. It does not occur anywhere except the area of my chest that is normally seen through a neckline opening and across my nose and a little bit of my cheeks. I am 50 years old but still have oily skin. Any suggestions?

Avatar n tn These bumps appear every year during summer on my chest and some on the shoulders, but never before have I had them on my neck and I've never had so many of them. They are scattered around on my chest and shoulders, but are more tightly spaced/appear in clusters on the neck. They aren't noticable when I stand facing the light, but are I stand with my side to the light/window.
Avatar m tn Around late winter i started noticing red spots on my chest and around my clavicle to the back of my neck. they are a light red and can be from the size of an eraser tip to a dime. they dont itch or hurt or anything, they just look gross. also i am sunburned right now and since the area of the 'rash' is red the spots have now turned white. whats wrong?
739632 tn?1454261272 I have a dozen eraser sized circles on chest and now on neck. They are pinkish, not raised, don't itch. Have a dry skin appearance. They are multiplying slowly. Any ideas on what they are??
Avatar f tn Within the past year, I have been getting a small rash on my chest. The area is about the size of a quarter, it’s red and itchy at first, and then a day or two it almost looks like I have tiny blisters in the red and itchy area. It’s very uncomfortable and appears in the same spot every time. Any idea on what this could be? I went into the doctor when it first happened and they said it was just a normal rash that would go away. They gave me antibiotics and I was sent home.
405370 tn?1332206110 So Amiah has quite the rash on her neck. She's going to the DR. next week, but I'm wondering if other babies have this. It doesn't bother her, but it sure looks like an allergic reaction. We've been putting Aquaphor on it...Any suggestions? Thanks!
Avatar m tn I understand but I am so conscious about the 5 pimple like rash on my chest. Everytime when I see them I get anxious. Do they seem like HIV related rash to you?
Avatar m tn Hello, From the picture,it looks like herpes zoster. is a viral disease characterized by a painful skin rash with blisters in a limited area on one side of the body, often in a stripe.Diagnosis is by clinical examination, Tsanck smear, VZV-specific IgM antibody in blood and polymerase chain reaction for VZV DNA.Treatment involves oral steroids and antiviral drugs. Pls elaborate more on the symptoms so that I can help you in a better way. Hope it helps.
Avatar f tn I developed a rash on my chest about a week ago, mainly on the right side and it looks like mosquito bites and itches a lot but not constantly. I don't know whether it's just a rash or if it's connected to STDs. I haven't had intercourse for over a month and I wasn't exposed on anything that might cause an allergy. I haven't used anything on it yet. Could someone help me figuring out what it is?
Avatar f tn Two red blotches appeared on chest. Five days later, after using Dial soap, my chest and stomach were covered in red bumps. They aren't itchy and don't bother me except for their appearance. Could these be from allergies? Should I go to the doctor?
Avatar n tn For two years now, I have suffered from a rash on my chest. It looks like a sunburn, and it burns and itches. The rash comes and goes. Could this rash be related to Lupus? Thank you.
Avatar m tn I recently got a rash on my chest, below my nipple. It's a series of small raised red bumps (very close together) - maybe 12 -15. It's been a little over a week and they look to be fading a bit now. They're not painful, but can itch (although not all the time). I'm sexually active with multiple partners in the past few months, but always wear protection.
