Circular shaped bumps on the chest, not acne prone. What could it be?

I have bumps on my chest . They are oval or circular in shape and I only have a few. I thought that it was a pityriasis rosea but I didn t have a herald patch and it hasn t spread rapidly. I am anxious to figure out what it is becuase it has been bugging me for the few weeks I ve had it for. My father tells me that it s just normal and it will go away on it s own, he has also told me that he has some too. My skin is fairly clear and I don t get acne except for maybe one or two pimples . I am very worried that it could be serious and could spread to my face or my arms.

In your case it is most probably pityriasis rosea ,apply mild hydrocortisone cream at night and bland emollient in day and wait.
