Hi everyone, new to Acne.org and I'm just wondering if anyone knows a name for what I have.

I used to get acne/spots a lot on my face and sometimes on my back and arms. Im 22 now and hardly get any spots on my face, maybe the odd one or two a month.

What concerns me is that on my back, chest and upper arms is a red rash. It looks like acne, but only slightly raised, and if I press on a patch of skin (like seeing if a rash is caused by Meningitis for example) they disappear and my skin looks clear until the blood returns to that spot again. My armpits, directly down the sides of my torso, legs and forearms are completely unaffected.

Anyone have any idea what this could be?
