You have an irritant or contact dermatitis. Some product or substance gets on your skin and breaks you out. Sometimes it is difficult to determine what is causing this condition. Treatment for the chest can be prescription Topicort Spray or Clobetasol Cream. For around the eyes you would use the prescription Cloderm or Locoid Lotion.
