What causes itchy rash with white heads on chest?

I have a new rash on my chest with a few whiteheads. I just finished a ten day round of amoxicillin for a sinus infection and finished the last round Saturday night. The rash appeared almost instantly on my chest Sunday night and is a little itchy. What is it?

Hi,

It seems to be an eczematous rash. I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like cortisone cream on the affected area and take antihistamine like tablet Cetirizine.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
