Red Rash without itching

I have a red rash on my chest and lower abdomen.The rash does not itch and is not raised.I have had the rash for a few weeks.
I have a hairy chest and I work out at the gym every day.Could this problem be caused by sweating?The rash does not seem to cover the entire chest area.

I really can't say.  It could be from sweating, I guess--are there red spots, or is it scaly?  If scaly, it could be eczema.  I guess you can wait a week or two if the rash doesn't bother you, but if it doesn't go away, you'll need to be seen for proper diagnosis.

Best.
