I am 15 years old and it is winter.

Recently I have recieved a lotion from my friend. I didnt use it much because I didnt like the way it smelled but I used it on my face a few times.

A few days later I woke up and on my chest around the bra area and lower stomach there were about 20 or so reddish to brownish dots!

I was very scared and since im a teenager I thought it was just acne, but I do not have any acne on my face or body and I never have had any acne.

It was very abnormal, I started searching around the internet

I think that it could be Pityriasis rosea but I cant be too sure.

The bumps on my body seem to match the descriptions but Im afraid to find out that its something more serious.

Plus, I have heard that UV rays help but its besically snowing where I live and I do not go tanning because I have fair skin.

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this rash before running season starts? (spring)
I have to do a sport and I dont want anyone to see me like this x(

If anyone out there can tell me about some cream or lotion that I can buy in a store I would be EXTREMELY thankful, I dont want to go to the doctors at this point
