As per your query you have symptoms of small red mark on the stomach which occurs due to infection of hair follicles leading to folliculitis.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you to make use of product containing benzoyl peroxide. Take Multivitamin supplements. Apply topical antibacterial ointment such as mupirocin and do yoga and meditation daily. Drink plenty of water daily and add fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet. If condition doesn't start getting better in a month then consult dermatologist. Doctor may examine completely and prescribe treatment accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a sore on my stomach that started out as a small red bump and in the past 2 weeks has turned purple, peeled back, and started bleeding and oozing pus. I am worried only because it has been here so long and because it is very tender to touch. It now is a small hole that is open and it seems to be getting a little larger but is still very small. What could this be and what are good treatments for it?

hi, so i have red bumps on my stomach and legs. There have been a few on my legs for a couple of weeks but last night i woke up and had lots of them on my stomach and legs. They are not itchy but some have small white heads not like acne though. Should i be concerned? Or will they just go away? Please email me at

Hi, Yesterday I woke up with a small bump on my stomach just an inch below my breast. Today it seems bigger and more painful. It is very red. I squeezed it really hard and it seemed to change its shape, a small amount of puss came out but that has not happened since. It is about the size of a grape under the skin. What could this be?
