SPOTS/WHITE HEAD RASH ON CHEST, VERY EMBARESSING. PLEASE HELP! :(

I've had this rash on my chest for months now, They're like little white heads all over my chest and there's some near my neck too. I went to the doctor and they prescribed me some cream for it but it hasn't worked! I'm going to a wedding as a bridesmade in two weeks and i'd really like it to clear up by then :(
Please help!

hi,

what did the doctor tell you they were? what medication was prescribed?

It appears that what you describe is a condition called miliaria crystallina. They are the most superficial obstruction (with the most mild clinical presentation); instead of a rash the patient presents with multiple tiny blister-like lesions that look like beads of perspiration.

This can be prevented by avoiding activities that induce sweating, using air conditioning to cool the environment, wearing light clothing and in general, avoiding hot and humid weather. Frequent showering may also help.

Medical assistance should be sought for the first episode of a rash with the appearance of miliaria. The differential diagnosis includes several conditions which an experienced practitioner should be able to recognise and may require treatment distinct from the usual measures taken for miliaria. In most cases the rash of miliaria will resolve without intervention. However, severe cases can last for a number of weeks and cause significant disability. General measures should be recommended for all patients, including moving to an air-conditioned environment if possible, avoiding sweat-provoking activities and occlusive clothing, and taking frequent cool showers.

Hope thsi helped. you may get more information at :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miliaria.
