Pain in rib cage to hip bone, red spots, no fever, have nausea and diarrhea

I have had terrible pain on the right side of my body for the last 3 days. Pain goes from the bottom of my rib cage to my hipbone, and from bellybutton to spine . The area that hurts the most( just under my rib cage) has recently broken out with tiny red spots all over it, almost pimple-like. The ain worsens when I m sitting or standing, but not as much when I m laying down. I have no fever , but have been a bit nauseous and have had a touch of diarrhea .

Dear friend, welcome to HCM !

Painful rash along lower ribs and upper abdomen with nausea, diarrhoea could be Herpes (shingles).
Can you upload a photo of the rash here on the webpage using the uploader on your right)?

Is the pain excruciating and electric like or more of dull ache?
I would advise to see your ER/ physician for the condition as early treatment would greatly help.
Also an examination in person to consider other differentials if the rash is not classic.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck !
