Rash, red welt on abdomen, suspect kidney stones. Advised Flowmax, pain moving lower. What about welt ?

Saw a dr. Today for suspected Kidney stones . I m sure that s what is going on because I ve had them before. Dr. inquired about a rash and at the time had a red welt on my abdomen below the belly button. Was prescribed Flowmax, which seems to be doing the job and I think the pain is moving lower (as the stone goes lower). But I just noticed a few more red splotches (raised red welts). I can handle the pain (got vicodin ) and I m passing lots of fluids now. But the new welts concern me.

I doubt if the welts and the kidney stones are related unless you are allergic to Flomax. If you find that the pain is moving lower, and if you are comfortable with Flomax without any major giddiness or other side-effects, I suggest you continue using the drug till you are sure that you have passed the stone.
You can consult a dermatologist for your welts if they persist.
