Red Blotchy Rash On Chest And Back
Hives: If you have hives, the rash should be itchy and it should be dynamic (each spot tends to move or disappear before being replaced by another spot). First or second line antihistamines are a good first step if you suspect hives. If this is recurring or persisting for more than a week, consider a virtual consult to discuss potential causes and the necessary work up.

Hand in hand: This has been known as "pudic erythema": a reaction to emotion/embarrassment, usually. It's perceived as "hyperexcitability of vaso-motor nerves" and can go hand in hand with urticarial (hives) reactions - a form of allergic reaction that can happen idiosyncratically (individual/unique to each person), like may be with strawberry wine. So, there is a correlation. Mention it to your primary md.
