Sounds like you may have some eczema, although this isn't the most common place for it. It would be best to let a doctor look at these rashes -- start with your primary care doctor, and if need be, see a dermatologist. Good luck to you.

My husband is alcoholic and in pain in stoumach when he drinks he also has itchy skin but no rash could this b liver failure?

Could be

Rash
It might just be alcoholic hepatitis, but it could also be cirrhosis. Alcoholics also commonly get gastritis, or inflammation of the lining of the stomach, so that could be involved as well. The itchy skin does suggest a liver problem. Is he jaundiced (yellow)? He needs help! Please have him see a doctor.
