Red Rash, Looks Almost Like Acne On Chest

the other day i noticed this rash on my chest, like above each boob in the same spot... it looks like a bunch of small pimples but i showed my mom and she said it could be sun poisoning, however the last time i was in the sun with my chest exposed in these areas was a week and a half ago and my chest never got sunburned then... it itches a little sometimes but mostly it looks icky!! what is this?? please help! i think im going to see the dermatologist soon to figure it out if it doesnt clear up... i have not used any new body wash, lotion or anything like that

Dermatitis
Dermatitis is a more scientific term that simply means derma "skin" + itis "inflammation". So saying it is dermatitis is basically saying it's a rash! Yay.....now what rash? We still Don't know. Smile
