? Nickel dermatitis: Many possibilities but common is a nickel dermatitis from the button on your jeans. I would apply otc Hydrocortisone 3x daily (rx works better if you go to a dermatologist) and avoid wearing any pants with buttons. If it goes away and you want to wear jeans again, you will need to apply 3 coats of clear nail polish before you wear them every time. Please get checked if not resolved. ...Read more

Stomach has been itchy for awhile. However only becomes really itchy if I scratch. After scratching a red rash appears. Recurs if scratched. Thoughts?
Scratching ↑es most: skin irritations, itching, whatever the basis. Physical irritation also stimulates more blood flow into capillaries, thus the ↑ed red color. Need a dermatologist to ask some questions & look at the situation. ...Read more

I have a rash all over my body apart from my face and stomach but it doesn't itchy it's just very red?
Probably viral rash: Rashes caused by allergies itch - so this one is not an allergy. Press on a spot for a second. The rash should fade away momentarily & then reappear. If it doesn't you have bruising in the skin - petechiae (see photo) - promptly see a doctor for that. If it does fade & you otherwise feel well give the rash a week or two. If it still doesn't fade away see your doctor then. ...Read more
I had my gallbladder removed 9 days ago. A large red itchy rash has come up on my stomach is that normal?
Pain meds: Are you taking any prescription meds for the pain? You may be having an allergic reaction to the meds or even the adhesive from the bandages or the anti-bacterial soap used to prep you for surgery. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) would be a good medicine to try to help with the rash, but if it continues much longer, i would have you doctor examine you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a red rash on my hips all the way to my stomach. They are small dots that are red and not itchy. I also had some blood splots but they went awa?
Fungus: Fungal infection beneath stomach roll is called intertrigo; that of the groin is tinea cruris. Fungus loves warm, dark, moist areas of body; so keeping those areas dry (change damp clothes/underwear; apply talc or antifungal spray) will help. Use antifungal spray or cream (lamasil/tinactin/cruex/desenex/etc) for at least a week after rash resolves & then as needed for prevention. ...Read more
