I am experiencing  rash on chest and rash (quality: itchiness, blisters, bumpy, red or bluish purple) .

Many possibilities: Rashes can be hard to figure out without looking at them. A rash can happen sometimes if a person's body is reacting to the germ causing viral or bacterial symptoms (sort of like an allergic reaction). Strep throat bacteria can make a toxin that causes reddish rashes. Allergy to certain foods or other substances can create rashes. Little blisters can be viral, bacterial, or contact dermatitis. ...Read more

Red rash in between pecs for 2 days. I wear tight fitting vest and my chest sweats at work. No pain, only itches. Tiny blisters. Defined borders.

See Your Doctor Now: The info you give suggests Folliculitis, a bacterial skin infection due to friction trauma to your skin from wearing tight clothing; now infected with bacteria. Itching is common. To prevent in future: wash with soap/water daily after work, dry & air-dry well, apply powder before work. Visual inspection is needed to correctly diagnose your rash; antibiotic may also be needed. See your doctor now. ...Read more

I have red spots blister looking all over stomach, chest, arms and back that have just appeared. No itch. Any ideas what it could be?

Body rash: The cause of a rash can sometimes be hard to determine - so usually a good description of the rash, any associated symptoms, environmental exposures, medication usage, 'sick' contacts etc help to make the diagnosis. In your case I'm suspicious for Pityriasis rosea since your not itchy, your trunk is largely involved, your age and seeming lack of other symptoms. Probably a good idea to show a doc. ...Read more

Have a rash on my chest small patch three patches on back.Slightly itchy and sore. Red very small blisters. Also suspect I have a yeast infection.

Possibly shingles: If the patches are in a line-like pattern (as opposed to a random pattern), it is likely you have shingles (reactivation of chicken pox virus), and you need a prescription for an antiviral medication if the rash began within the past 3 days. Sometimes a steroid such as Hydrocortisone or Prednisone is also prescribed. The yeast infection can be treated with an antifungal medication. See your pcp. ...Read more
