Question - been breaking out on stomach and sides with rash like pimples that can be popped like acne for bigger ones. Mild case but been going on for nearly a year and getting worse... Ever since I had a mole removed on my stomach - but could be coincid

Folliculitis?: Superficial skin infections usually are due to common skin bacteria, sometimes staph or strep. Surgical wounds can increase skin bacterial growth which might persist after healing, so conceivably related to the mole removal. But this is a common condition regardless of past surgery and that makes no difference now in prevention or treatment. Try antibacterial soap, see a doctor if nothing changes. ...Read more

Stomach pain, pimple rash=AB & steroids, came back =cipro and for stomach pain=Prilosec. Blk specs in stool. Stomach, colon, intest. Cancer? MRSA spread?

Nondiagnostic: These symptoms are nondiagnostic without a thorough history and physical examination by a physician. It is unusual to prescribe steroids for stomach pain and a rash and then get another antibiotic prescribed. Your physician who knows all your findings is best to advise you. I doubt that cancer is the problem, however. Further studies seem warranted. ...Read more

I'm having symptoms of bloated stomach, rash under breasts and back, terrible acne on face and just a achy body. What is this?

At least 3 issues: Your physician needs to manage your acne. The rash under your breasts may simply require good skin care.

I have a horrible pimple like boil on my lower stomach. Popped it twice and a lot came out. Next day is really swollen around the area and hurts bad?

Possible infection: If it is in fact a "boil" it could either just be inflamed but since it is painful I would worry about the possibility of an infection - expecially if you popped it and traumatized it with your hands. Our hands are really dirty! Make your way over to your dermatologist or a walk in center to get it checked out for possible infection. ...Read more
