are they in one spot on your stomach? or scattered all over?

no other rash well i would say scattered but only on stomach not chest and i guess u would say there is some crusting
Doctor: Doctor Ellis, Doctor replied 7 years ago

Sometimes the stomach is a common place for a shingles (herpes zoster) infection, but these start as blisters and are painful in a more straight line pattern.

It is most likely folliculitis - an inflammation and infection of the hair follicles on your stomach. Your doctor can prescribe a short course of antibiotics to help it resolve and you may want to use antimicrobial soaps.

Your doctor can also rule out scabies - an infection of a skin mite that can be very itchy.

I hope this was helpful. If so, please click on the green ACCEPT button.

Best wishes!

Can you think of anything else I dont really have a hairy stomach
Doctor: Doctor Ellis, Doctor replied 7 years ago

You have hair follicles on your stomach even though it doesn't look hairy.

It could also simply be a contact dermatitis from something that you wear or use. You can switch to all dye and perfume free soaps and detergents and try a hydrocortisone 1% cream on the rash to see if it works.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
