I have a red swollen itchy  rash on my left side of my stomach and it hurts to the touch ?

Is it shingles ?: Need a picture or a physical exam to begin to guess what it is. If you have a group of blisters located only on one side and it's both itchy and painful, shingles is one possibility . This is a reactivation of the chicken pox virus and it's not very common at your age, 33. It usually occurs when people are older, sick or stressed. Very important to see a doctor within the first 48 hours! Go asap! ...Read more

What could be the cause of this rash on my stomach, sides, and breasts it's red, raised, and very itchy I just got over a virus could that cause it?

Examination: Without seeing this it is impossible to know. If you were on antibiotics or other medications it may be a systemic allergic reaction. Could also be a contact dermatitis due to detergent in clothing, etc. the other possibility is that this is part of a tick-borne infection, although those are seldom itchy. Have this looked at by a professional. Good luck. ...Read more

Can B12 deficiency cause upset stomach, red rashes or spots on the back of my palm, sore nd tingling tongue with occasional blood in saliva nd weakness?

Yes: All of those symptoms can be attributed to vitamin B12 deficiency. With the exception of the rash and spots they are classic signs of this problem. If you suspect that you may have a deficiency and you can't attribute it to poor diet/absorption, too much alcohol, or over use of anti acid drugs see your doctor for a proper work up and diagnosis. ...Read more

You : You should visit your primary care provider or an allergist to have allergy skin or blood testing done. In the meantime try benadryl, if that works then you can be more confident that it is allergy related. Also consider new lotions, detergents or soaps that you may be using. Best of luck. ...Read more

Stretch marks?: Aka striae= scarring on the skin with an off-color hue, caused by tearing of the skin, which over time may diminish, but will not disappear completely. Often associated with rapid growth/ weight changes. And may be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, hormone replacement therapy, cushing syndrome etc..I suggest consulting doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more
