Hives? Rash? It keeps spreading it starts as a red area then a welt appears and it itches and burns/stings on legs arms lower  back and lower abdomen

Hive & rash: you have urticaria or allergic dermatitis, it is best if you see your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment, at the mean time try an antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) hydrocortisone cream, but you need to find out what you are allergic to. Good luck ...Read more

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

I've had itching inside my stomach for years-it got a little better for a year-2 but has gotten worse again. Possible cause and especially treatments?

I've had itching inside my stomach for years-it got a little better for a year-2 but has gotten worse again. Possible cause and especially treatments?

Some thoughts.: there are several possibilites. cannot say in your particular case, but generally, odd symptoms in that area occur in up to ONE in THREE adults on any given day (Mayo Clinic Textbook). You'd think it would be psychological but proton pump inhibitors like omeprazole work in 90%, fake drug 25%. Hiatal hernia, motility, reflux is theorized as cause. ...Read more

Hard to say: The human nervous system has no direct localizing fibers in the internal organs.You cannot itch inside your stomach.What type of sensation a 4yo would describe this way is hard to say. Gas/bloating/reflux/cramps ? Perhaps you can coax a better description if you work on it. ...Read more

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

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

Why does left side of my stomach itch inside?

Why does left side of my stomach itch inside?

Itching: This is a nonspecific symptom that may simply be due to mild irritability of superficial nerves in the left side of your abdominal wall especially since there is no associated rash or pain. I doubt that it has a serious cause unless you develop widespread itchiness without associated rash. In that case you would be checked for diabetes, hyperthyroidism, electrolyte disorders,etc. ...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

Ignore no symptoms: Abdominal discomfort of any kind is not to be ignored--its a warning sign that something may be wrong inside your abdomen. Please see my many healthtap answers on the subject of what causes abdominal distress. Not all such problems are serious, but you don't want to miss the inflammatory or infectious one that is. Can't offer definitive relief however without an exam for diagnosis. Be well--. ...Read more
