Dear Flame,

Your rash and abdominal pain might be linked or maybe two different conditions. You should get a visual examination done by a physician. The rash might be a superficial infection and abdominal pain and nausea might be because of a (separate) stomach/intestinal condition. To relieve your symptoms you can use superficial soothing creams and anti-allergic medication available over the counter. If you develop any other symptoms you must immediately visit a doctor.

Do well.

OBGYN Dr. Timothy Raichle's  Response

This is best evaluated in person where someone can look at the rash. From what you describe, it sounds like you might have 'shingles'.

This is a reactivation of the varicella zoster virus (related to chicken pox). It can occur exactly like you describe and should be treated with antivirals. Untreated 'zoster' can lead to chronic pain - so go get it checked out!

Good luck!
