Resolved Question:

I have a rash on my chest, in the sternum area. The shape is like a pyramid, 4 cm long and 2.5 cm long on the basis. The color is reddish. I have this problem for many years and from time to time, the rash becomes itchy, especially when I'm stressed. What I do against the itchy symptom is shaving the chest hair and applying Betadine. What could be the cause of the rash? Thanks!

From your description it sounds like eczema but I am not sure.It has to be examined by a dermatologist directly and I think steroid cream application will be helpful.
