Cause for itchy red bumps on stomach? How to cure?

In the past year, I have been getting these little red bumps, almost like a really tiny pimple , on a very small area of my stomach . They can get very itchy at times, especially when first appearing, but usually do not bother me. Most of the time they will go away without a trace, but some of them have been staying on my skin and turning into little brown bumps. One of these bumps smoothed out, like a freckle , but the others did not. They don t change or bother me in any way beyond that. At first I thought it was an allergy , but nothing seems to trigger it. I have not changed soaps and I do not use lotions on my stomach. The soap I use is organic and gentle. No other area of my body is affected. I am going to see my doctor, but it won t be for a few weeks. I would like to know if there are certain questions I should ask and if this is a cause for concern. Again, they are extrememly tiny and difficult to see without being close up to my stomach. Thank you for your help.
