Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Can you please share a photo or two Susan ?
Are you still there?
You can click on the clip pin just above your writing field and attach the photos
Do you have any history of allergies ? Like food , drug or pollen allergy? Anything that you apply on your chest on a regular basis? Does it itch or burn at all ? Does the rash involve your breasts too ? Have you tried anything for this ?
I would like you to avoid using any cosmetic products on your chest including lotions , creams and perfumes.
Take antihistamine like benadryl atleast once daily.
Apply topical hydrocortisone on it 2-3 times a day. It will improve in a couple of weeks.
If it continues to persist then you should seek professional help from your doctor for getting prescription drugs for this.
It looks like urticaria / allergic dermatitis or eczema.
hope you found it helpful.
Let me know if you have any more queries.
