What causes itchy rash on abdomen?
User rating for this question
Good afternoon. I have three small groups of what I think are bites on my abdomen. They still itch horribly and it has been two weeks. I tried hydrocortisone cream and I actually had a refill on an antibiotic just to try. I haven't gone to the doctor yet.

Brief Answer: Please, Can you upload a picture of it!!! Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear about these itchy rash on your abdomen. The presentation of this rash is very suggestive of an allergic reaction. This should be related to a bed bug that bite you probably during sleep. However, it is very difficult to tell what the exact cause is without further information. I will suggest that you upload a picture for me to review and provide more information about this. For now, you can try some anti histamine drugs like Benadryl to relief yourself of the itches. I don't really think antibiotics would be able to help this condition but a review of the image would be helpful to make this condition. I hope this helps. I wish you well. Please upload the image and feel free to ask for further information and clarification if need be. Thanks. Dr. Ditah, MD.
