What causes tender skin rash around the lower back to stomach?

A week ago, I started out having very tender skin (like a bad sunburn) around my left lower back that has now moved into the skin on the left side of stomach. There is no rash or blisters so I do not think it is shingles. You can not visually see anything.

Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to dermatitis. I suggest using an antihistamine such as Cetirizine to relieve the rash. I also suggest using a mild steroid cream for local application such as Hydrocortisone cream.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
