Bumps On Chest Not Acne
I have these little red bumps on my chest that resemble acne, but arent. They usually appear after showers, but won't go away now. What are they?!?
Read up on...: Cholinergic urticaria. See if this is what you have. If I'm way off, please forgive me, write back with more details & maybe one of us can make an educated guess -- though diagnosing rashes without seeing them is a challenge. Best wishes.
Need diagnosis: You need a diagnosis to decide on a treatment plan.
Skin lesions: Well, with the limited description acne can be on the list of things that cause bumps on the chest. I would recommend having a physician take a look to give you a better answer.
I have itchy brown bumps on my back and they started spreading to my chest and other parts of my body. They look like acne.
Itchy bumps: Several possibilities including bug bites. Time to see a dermatologist for acne and itchy bumps.
Developed a bunch of bumps on my chest. Not sure if it's acne but there's no white heads or black heads, just bumps. Use sensitive detergent and soap.?
See a dermatologist: There are many possible diagnoses for the above complaint including eruptive vellus hair cysts. The best approach is to be examined and diagnosed by a dermatologist.
I get acne like little and big bumps, mostly skin colored, Some red and painfull. They do not itch and come and go. Around forehead mostly chest also?
Manage it: I'm going to assume this actually is acne. Don't try to figure out the cause, but assume it's unrelated to lifestyle, hygiene or diet. With lesions on your trunk, you'll need a physician's Rx. Start with over-the-counter topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated, maybe 5% 2x/day, and make your appointment. Spironolactone or the oral contraceptive pill may be your first Rx.

Bumps: Sending a picture would help, perform a virtual consult to better help you.
I have pimple like bumps all over my arms and chest and shoulders, they don't itch they are just extremely imbassersing! I know its not acne.?
Keratosis pilaris: One common cause of pimple like lesions on the arms and chest is keratosis pilaris. It is due to dry skin building up around the hair follicles. Sometimes it is associated with small pustules and pimple like lesions. Use a moisturizer with Lactic Acid or urea and exfoliate will help some. The condition is inherited and is not curable.
Can I use dovobet for small pimple like bumps all over my abdomen chest and back? I have had follicle problems, and body acne it looks similar to both

Devobet is a combination local ointment used for psoriasis and it contains Dexamethasone a strong steroid which may make your rash worse I will suggest you consult your family doctor or a dermatologist for appropriate diagnosis and treatment.

Is there such a thing as std related acne? I woke up with these weird red bumps on my chest and they resemble a pimple but don't pop like a pimple?
Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor.
