I have a strange itch inside my stomach under my belly button.  What can I do to make it stop?

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?

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

Hernias: Hernias are holes in the abdominal wall through which abdominal contents such as fat and intestines can protrude, causing a lump under the skin. I'm not sure what you mean exactly about the left side of your stomach, but hernias are commonly seen in the groins, ; in the middle of the abdominal wall at or above the belly button. May need to see your doctor for an exam to find out. Hope this helps! ...Read more
