What are these red spots on chest?

I have some red spots on my chest area that have appeared about a few weeks ago. I was not sure what they were but they are dry and not itchy at all. However there is only one larger one and then a few smaller ones that are on my chest area. I have tried to clean it with neutrogena's acne face wash soap bar but that didn't work. Was just wondering what is this?

I had red spots ( blotches ) appear on my chest and back, I asked my doctor what it was, he knew exactly, however it had a long name I could not remember, but the cure surprisingly was Sesun Blue medicated shampoo, just as doctor stated all the spots were gone within three weeks, worth a try....

Did you scratch them, are they above the skin? I think they are acne on the chest. You can try using some acne cream or leave them alone for some days. They go off on their own. If not then you chat with a Doctor here. Finish.
