Rash on chest: This is not urgent and you should stay at home for now. When safe to see your primary care provider or a dermatologist, that is your best course to take. If you have the ability to communicate remotely with your family doctor or a dermatologist, you could perhaps send them a photo of the rash and they could perhaps diagnose and treat it remotely.
