Hello

Thanks for posting your query.

Your symptoms do sound like that of gall stones. The next best step forward would be to get an ultrasound abdomen done which can pin point the cause of problem.

Your skin lesions don't seem to be relates to gall stones. It would be better if you can upload a picture of your skin lesions. This will help us decide what it is and also suggest treatment for it. Also I want to know, do you also have itching at the skin lesion site?

Awaiting your reply.
