When I shower, I break out in red “bumps” across my chest, abdomen, shoulders, and back?

When I shower, I break out in red “bumps” across my chest, abdomen, shoulders, and back. I also noticed this after I went for a run outside with no shirt. At first, it was just a small patch, and it did not itch, burn, or anything, so for a while I was not concerned; now it is spreading all over my upper body.

Pitryasis versicolor mostly , or could be eczema if severely itchy

I recommend yo use soothing agents and if still, use mild potency steroids

Hi..
Looks like allergic rash and bumps.
Does it itch severely or occurs after applying any specific soap or detergent?

Try changing the soap you use, take benadryl and apply caladryl lotion..

Hope this helps..

It was not there before the shower??
Is it itchy or not??

Coz it’s more common to be heat rash as my colleague said …
This is self limiting condition

I had that, my dermatologist said it was a non harmful yeast on the ski , had to pay for expensive cream which ended up being antifungal cream, apply it for a few days and it goes away. You can get antifungal cream at the dollar store or buy the cheapest brand at any store.
