Small red bumps/blisters on chest

I have small red bumps and blisters on my left pec. The blisters look ike it does when your skin bubbles from a sun burn. These started out as bumps about 4 days ago and just rcently started to blister. This has not spread anywhere else besides where it originally formed. Any possible diagnosis on what this is and if I should see a doctor.

Hello,
Without examination, confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be due to contact dermatitis,sweat dermatitis or heat rash.

Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin if the blisters itch.

If still the symptoms do not improve or turn painful then pls get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist.Herpes blisters have to be ruled out.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
