Red spots
I had the same thing on my chest at one time. I had a few red looking spots (slightly raised and some skin colored looking spots. I asked someone and they mentioned sun spots or some sort of fungal spots so I bought liquid lamisil and rubbed that on there twice a day for about a month and they went away. ????? Dont know what it was but a doctor should be able to swipe the skin with a q tip and look at it under a microscope. I had a red dot under my eye as well, used the lamisil patiently and its gone.......

i have this too. it started when i was about 12 and im now 18 and same thing happens especially in my joints in my arms and on my chest and under my breats. they look horrible. anyway i ended up going to a doctor and they told me it's related to fungal and the quickest and most effective way to get rid of it is to get yellow selsun, you can get it in your local supermarket. and you smoother the infected areas in the orange liquid which doesn't smell good for 15 minutes for 10 days and they go away for a couple of months but you have to repeat this about every 3 months.. it's the only solution i have. Hope this helps.

similar symptoms
has anyone got any information? Im a 22 yo male and these spots appeared on my stomach just above my belly button and now there is a couple under my right nipple. I am kind of worried as has been there for a month now.

It seems very similar to the rest of the posts and they do not hurt or itch. I have also fallen sick just before they appeared with the flu.

Any ideas?

I'm gonna have to go with the utterly useless post which has nothing to offer in way of curing this, but merely adds to the growing minority of people that can say I have it too haha.
They aren't raised, they don't itch, they don't hurt, they don't bleed, they are just... there.
They are dotted around my stomach with the largest about the size of a 2p coin and the smallest the size of a pea, and go from the belly button as high as the nipple area, but is contained within that area.
I'm trying to book a doctor's appointment but can't go until a few days, so if anyone has any solution to this it would be truly appreciated as they are rather frustrating and unattractive.
Many thanks.

And of course....I have them too. I'm 18. Under my breasts and on my stomach. At first I thought it was a fungal thing because I had that before and it looked similar. I do remember putting Lamisil on it and it went away. This time it just seems to spread. So now I'm thinking since I just got on birth control that it MAY be that, although the first spot appeared more than a month ago around a mole on my hip and I've been on BC less than 3 weeks. The first one is now about the size of a quarter. But I'm going to call the doctors tomorrow and find out if that could be it.

In response to all these posts, mine have finally faded and almost completely disappeared.
I guess the remedy is time.
Which, you know, sucks really, but at least they aren't there forever!
For those wondering, mine took about 3 months to go.
Hope all goes well for all you fellow confused red patchy people!

Not the answer, but close.
Heyy.. I have the same condition.. I hear that alot of people are getting worried.. I'm not a doctor but I do alot of research..Stop getting worried.. What doesn't hurt or oesn't irritate is usually no harm.. I was pretty worried before I came on here until dinkyblack said that it may be a reaction from a viral infection. A couple month ago I started getting spots under my arm pits.. It was a viral infection.. The doc gave me some antibiotics and antibacterial wash and they went.. So my assu ption is that mine is a reaction from the viral infection.. I'v noticed some peoples symptoms are slightly vaired.. Like larger spots..Or darker etc.. Maybe just heat rash? Or if you've changede anything at all in the diet?

Either way folks.. Please stop worrying.. Theres nothing worse.. All you have tot hink is that if they were there to harm you, you would have felt some pain, or some change that affects you, and you havent Very Happy

Hey everyone, I had all the same symptoms everyone here is reporting: spots all over the stomach and back that don't itch or hurt. My dermatologist told me it's called pityriasis. Here is the info:

Red spots
I had a bite below my belly that turned into a red round circle and then disappeared within a week. Then I got some weird splotchy red dashes and dots above my belly button and felt like crap so went to the doctor. It turns out I was probably bitten by a tick and am being treated for Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease. I am on antibiotics and feel better but have severe fatigue from the medicine. I had tests done and so far the main result it that I am off the charts in the inflammation department. I am going to try an anti inflammation diet and stay away from the neighbors dog.

red spots chest back, non itchy, painless
I have this exact same thing as described in the May 17th, 2006 post (see below). Any body have any answers? I would like to solve this;

"Hey. I'm new to this board but I figured i'd give it a shot on here before I see a doctor to see if anyone had any idea what's going on with me.


Recently, i've noticed red spots on my stomach, back, and chest. They go anywhere from the size of a pin point to as large and an eraser head on a pencil. They are not raised off the skin, nor do they hurt, itch, or anything else. I feel perfectly fine but it worries me since this, obviously, isn't normal. I've also noticed a somewhat bad taste in my mouth, lately. Kind of like that bad taste you get when you have tonsilitis.


I had the chicken pox when I was 6 (i'm now 23) so I know it's not that. I have not made any camping trips or anything in the recent past. The only thing i've done out of the ordinary, lately, is make a trip to vegas with friends two weeks ago. I've heard of 'bed bugs' at hotels but i'm not stressing about something like that.


Anyone have any ideas what this might be?

Non itching red spots on torso
I am a 55 year old woman. I woke up one morning and noticed one red spot on my torso about the size of a pencil eraser and wondered what it could be. The next morning I had ten. I went to the doctor having heard about shingles. He laughed and asked if I could have bed bugs? I have done nothing different, had not travelled, no new vitamins, neds etc. I also had a slight sore throat for a few days and felt tired. I am disappointed that a doctor wasn't a little more curious as to what I had. But I am glad to hear more people have had the same thing so perhaps it is a virus.

Anything come from your research? I have hypothyroidism and got strep throat 3 weeks ago. This rash showed up 1 week after strep. I went to the doctor and he said it was viral. He ran my blood and I came back positive for Hsv type 1 today. I am not convinced I have this and I don't believe it is related tO this weird non itch rash on my belly and under my breasts. I am also 20 weeks pregnant. If you have any info related to your rash and hypothyroidism I am very interested. Thanks.

Hi to all,
My 21 year old son has these red spots on his back and upper chest , it also appears on his face only more scaley, he has had this for around 3-4 years and it has never gone away but recedes and flairs up from time to time.
At first we thought it was hormone related but we now seem to think it is a virus of some type,(it may well be linked to candida/ fungus ? ) , it does not bother him too much but lately he has heen rubbing it on his face when sitting relaxed, this has made it more prenounced.
It does not seem to go away on it own but sunbathing (ultraviolet light ) swimming in the sea (salt water) and colloidal silver rubbed on all make it recede , all of these treatments are proven method to kill bacteria, so it appears to be some type of infection.

At times of stress it spreads more (lower immunity) and when he makes an effort with a good diet and exercise it almost clears up completely, but never fully.

We think if he made a concerted effort to treat himself for long enough with colloidal silver, urine or another proven method to kill bacteria he would be able to clear it completly and permanently, but as it does not bother him too much he becomes lazy and ignores his treatments which allows it to flair up over and over.
If you want to experiment with this try eating a clean unprocessed food diet with low sugar whilst useing a proven treatment such as silver or urine (Yes your own urine rubbed on is one of the most powerfull antibacterial substances available to you, and it is free, )if you rub it on a small test area a few time per day leave it for ten minutes or so to soak into the area then rinse lightly to stop any smell building it's a safe way to test the effects without wasteing money, if it clears the area you know that you are on the right tracks, use fresh urine daily or go on to buy some colloidal silver and spray the effected area throughout the day, good luck.

Mark

slightly itchy red circles= PITYRIASIS ROSEA
I have had these symptoms for over a year now. no irritation just spots only for me they are present from my chest all the way up my neck. I did some research and found PITYRIASIS ROSEA to be the closest conclusion. doctors dont know what causes it.
