I have brownish/ red spots underneath my breasts (on my chest) which do not hurt and aren't particularly raised up but have been there a while?

Possible yeast: The area you describe often stays moist from general sweating and occulsion from your bra, which is a great enviroment for fungal infection, Candia or tinea versicolor or the same fungus that causes athlete's foot. Alternatively, mild inflammation from chronic friction from clothing can result in post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Try an antifungal cream like clotrimazole. ...Read more

I have a few red spots on my chest, and now they are turning dark brown and the spots are speeding all over my chest. I am not itching or irritated.?

Many possibilities: If it's symmetrical it likely has an internal cause, such as eczema or a virus. If not symmetrical it more likely has an external cause, such as an allergy to something you have contacted. Try an otc Hydrocortisone cream, and if that does not help see your doctor or a dermatologist for a precise diagnosis and more specific treatment. ...Read more

One of the symptoms: Of dysautonomia. The autonomic nervous system dilates and constricts arterioles in the skin. Yours is unstable and since emotions are initiated by that part of the brain there is a vascular relationhip. Dysautonomia can be inherited but the commonest cause is poor diet, particularly the sugary "junk" food and beverages. ...Read more

Hi Folks, your assistance is appreciated. Our daughter had small, pimply, red spots on her Chest and tummie. (4 days) She doesn’t have a temperature.?

Unfortunately: For infantile rashes, it is virtually impossible to guess what they could be unless it is directly visualized, which is not possible on this medium. The lack of a temperature is a reassuring sign however. You need to bring her to a healthcare provider who can lay eyes on this rash. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Very small red spots in my 5 months baby's chest and back. Is this a food allergy?

Maybe: If you recently added a new food to his or her diet then I would be suspicious of a food allergy. It may be necessary to remove a suspicious food, wait for the rash to clear and consider re-adding the food depending on what your doctor says. Your doctor can make a better diagnosis of he or she sees the rash while it is present. ...Read more

May need antibiotics: Little red dots that look like acne, occurring on the chest, can be acne if the person usually has chest acne. If the person usually has no rash there, then the spots are more likely infected skin pores, oil glands, hair follicles, etc... If quite mild, over-the-counter antibiotic (like neosporin) cream can be tried. If the rash is big and/or growing, the a doctor may use stronger antibiotics. ...Read more

Shingles: If the red spots progress to a rash that is in a patch, or swath of skin that matches a dermatome you probably have shingles.
