Having itchy red rashes, tender on touching at lower abdomen. Causes?

i have a red rash , sometimes very itchy, in a line across my lower stomach/abdomen, from pelvic bone to pelvic bone. It varies from 1/4 to an inch in width. it is sometimes tender to the touch. On a couple occastions it has kept me up most of the night, due to itch and pain/ irritation . I did see a doctor for it, a week ago, who said was allergic reaction to something. I haven t changed laundry soap or done anything different that I know of. I did however rewash my clothes but that did not seemed to make a difference. I have tried taking Benadryl , ice packs but neither seem to have helped Any ideas what is causing this?

I have gone through your query with diligence and after reading your history it appears that you might have developed allergic dermatitis to some contact allergen. You recollect anything new coming in your contact before appearance of the rash. If itching is present then can take benadryl accordingly. Apply a plenty of moisturizers over the affected area.

I advise you to not pinch or pop the area otherwise these areas are very prone for getting secondary infection. You can apply an steroid cream such as cortisone cream.
