If someone gets a burn on the upper chest because did not wear sunscreen Can the little eruptions spread to the breast, unexposed skin and below?

Sun burn: No. The rash is demarcated by the area exposed to harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun. It would only spread if it became infected with bacteria. If it is dry this is very unlikely but if it is weeping you need to keep it clean and may need a topical antiseptic cream.
