Do higher amount of gas for a month & stomach pain around belly button for a week (gets relieved after motion) indicate stomach ulcer or liver tumor?

Neither: Try to alter your diet to see if that brings relief. If that does not help, you should consult a doctor for the stomach pain as that may be due H pylori infection.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

My 5yr old has stomach pain around her belly button with diarrhea. A rash always follows the next day. I have taken her to her doctor but no answers.

Celiac disease?: If this is a recurrent condition, diarrhea followed by an itchy rash, I suggest your child be tested for Celiac disease, (autoimmune, gluten sensitivity) often underdiagnosed because the symptoms are very non specific. (Glutens are a form of protein found in some grains).
Of course, she could also have any of the more common entero-viruses that usually cause diarrhea associated with a rash. ...Read more

Uncertain: If the pain is directly over the hernia, it is likely related to the hernia, and you should see a general surgeon for a consultation. If the hernia was repaired, and that's where the pain is, it should gradually improve over the course of 2-6 weeks depending on the type of repair and your response to operation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have sharp pains in my stomach right above my belly button. What could that be caused from?

Some thoughts...: Abdominal pain has many causes. Far too many to list here. When you see your doctor, they'll ask you lots of questions: is it worse before or after you eat?

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
