I have been full of stress for the last 6 months with an undiagnosed problem-, yesterday had a dermitius rash on arms and stomach- can rashes come from stress it did not itch but was warm to touch?

In brief: Yes

Stress is a classic cause of rashes.
It has the sound of hives, but with no itch, it is difficult to truly give you an answer. Simply follow the rash and if it progresses, then a doctor needs to look at it.

In brief: Possible

Chronic stress can lead to multiple medical problems.
Would recommend yoga and meditation as ways to help reduce stress. Adequate sleep, healthy diet and regular exercise are also crucial.
