Need more information

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am Dr. kakkar (dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have viewed the images.
I can see raised, red, blotchy rash on chest and upper back It seems like Urticaria i.e hives.
However I would like to gather more information from you in order to be able to guide you better. Is the rash itchy? How long since he has this rash? Have you tried any treatment for it? Where else is the rash distributed?
