Meckel's: Ask for a meckel's scan. The meckel's diverticulem is often the cause of undiagnosed abdominal pain. This is a congenital abnormality and hard to diagnose. Many if not most primary care physicians have never seen one. ...Read more

Rash or abdominal?: Usually when something "itches" that implies the skin, but i gather here you are talking about internally. There can be itching to surround the belly button itself because of rashes, but if it is internal, then it could be from a variety of causes. Recommend checking for urinary tract infection, if it persists. Could be bowel-cramps. Probably this is something that will away spontaneously. ...Read more

Can't offer definitive relief however without an exam for diagnosis. Be well--. ...Read more

I keep getting sores on my stomach and my stomach itches why?

Few clues, but: Tiny and not so tiny bug bites are one (of who knows how many) possible cause. Outdoors, chiggers would be my guess in this season in the midwest. Indoors, fleas from a pet or bedbugs are possible. Let a doctor see it - it could also be an allergic rash and it may be treated with anti-histamines in either case. Good luck! ...Read more

Infection: It may not be a bite but an infection. Many people mistake skin abscesses and cellulitis for spider or other insect bites. Bottom line, you need to see a doctor. You may need antibiotics. ...Read more
