Have pain while pushing at a point under ribs. Reason?

Hi, I am 20 years old and have a 5 month old baby. When I poke the left side of my stomach under my ribs down an inch or so, it is a really sharp pain. Just one tiny spot. And it feels like there s something in there like little strings or a pebble almost? It hurts really bad when I push right there. What could this be? Only bothers me when I touch it and its only on that side.

Hi welcome to health care magic forum. It appears that the spot on your stomach is hurting only when you touch the spot. It means it must be a skin infection. There must be an unerupted boil under the skin, or a gland. I advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
If untreated may lead to an abscess and must be drained by a surgeon.
There is a possibility of gastric irritation also so it is wise to avoid the things irritant to the stomach like spices, chillies, junk foods, and oily food.
I also advise you to avoid potato, other tubers, pulses, and fish to avoid accumulation of pus.
Wishing for a quick recovery and thanks for calling.
