Hey?Am having a rash all over my stomache and it's itchy .Little red bumps can it be herpes? Only my stomach
Unlikely: Herpes usually affects a small patch of skin, not a large area (like your entire abdomen). There is usually a raised reddish area with a cluster of tiny fluid-filled blisters.

Probably viral rash: Rashes caused by allergies itch - so this one is not an allergy. Press on a spot for a second. The rash should fade away momentarily & then reappear. If it doesn't you have bruising in the skin - petechiae (see photo) - promptly see a doctor for that. If it does fade & you otherwise feel well give the rash a week or two. If it still doesn't fade away see your doctor then. ...Read more
