I have this too..I've had it for like two months. I thought maybe it was from tanning too much but I'm not sure now. It's not like acne..they're just really tiny bumps that won't go away.

How big are the tiny red dots? Do they sometimes form bigger red dots? Does it look like a rash? What color are the tiny bumps on your chest? Do you have any pics?

The reason I am asking so many questions is that I slowly developed over time a lot of bumps on my chest. They are very very small and mostly are flesh colored. However some of them turn red and look like acne. But this only lasts a day or so and then they turn the normal flesh color again. I haven't figured out a reason why this happens.

Also the bad thing is that it has started migrating down my stomach. Mind you this has taken almost a year to do.

My dermatologist thought it was pitysporum folliculitis, but the meds didn't work for it. So now he thinks it is some kind of bacteria, plus fungus. Personally I think he is a little stumped.

Mine are flesh colored too.. I thought it could be some kind of folliculitis. This probably won't heal on its own right? I've been putting bp on it but it hasn't helped at all.

I tried using BP on it but it only seemed to make my skin more red and inflammed looking. Plus it itched and hurt a lot. I thought I was doing damage to my skin so I stopped using it. The doctor gave me nizoral and some sort of steroid ointment. The nizoral did nothing but the steroid helped.

BUT it is not going away entirely and it is spreading.

I don't know if this will help, but here are some pics
