Rashes for weeks. On neck, oval. What is it with red dots?

I have had this rash for about a week or two now and it just started as this weird oval brown ring on my neck then started getting red raised bumps all over that looked like bug bites then it started to spread and go away...etc. Then now today i woke up and it has seem to gotten way out of control. the red dots tend too like peel like a sunburn but only from the center of the red dots

Hi there. It does appear that you have a 'reaction pattern' of the skin to some sort of virus (upper respiratory or common cold virus) called pityriasis rosea. while this rash may last from 3-6 weeks & resolve by itself, am assuming you would want to be rid of it asap so please do visit your nearest dermatologist. It is nothing to be alarmed about & actually quite a simple albeit pesky condition to treat. All will be well soon. Cheers & good luck! P.S..a local emollient may help.
