In brief: Seborrhea or fungus

Besides the scalp seborrhea can cause scaly red rash on mid chest.
A superficial fungal infection called tinea versicolor can cause light or tan scaly patches on the trunk including the chest.

Both seborrhea and superficial fungal infections tend to favor areas where new hair is appearing.
