I have had a red rash since Saturday all over my upper

Customer Question

I have had a red rash since Saturday all over my upper torso. The bright red spots are about 1/4". They appear as red spots, then get a white center which ruptures. Some spots are redder then others and all are burning stinging itching. I have a family reunion this weekend and I am wondering if this is contagious or something more like poison ivy or oak which I haven't been into. What is the rash and how can I get rid of it?

can you upload a clear jpg photo of the rash so I can better assess it?
here are instructions to how to upload a photo
type a word in the textbox and highlight it
then select the "chain" icon above the textbox or the paper clip icon to upload a jpg
this opens a window where you can click next to the text box to select the jpg or pdf file on your computer to upload into JustAnswer

The spots are on both sides, but most of them seem to be on the left side. The biggest cluster of them are under the sagging breasts and these are red and clumped together. At first I thought it was just a heat rash, but then spread all over the torso.

if the majority of the rash is under the breast, it could be a fungal infection
you can't upload a photo of the rash?
