Question: Red Bumps on Stomach
|jacksparrowsgirl - Thu Nov 13, 2008 9:38 am||
Good Morning, I am hoping that someone could shed a little light on red raised bumps that I have on my stomach. It starts a few days prior to the pox like bumps with a low grade fever between 99.5 and 100. The fever subsides then when I wake up a have a few itchy red raised bumps on my stomach of similar chicken pox size. Within a day, they mutiply to anywhere between 30-50 of them on my belly and sides. They itch terribly and then sting afterwards. I get these same symptoms every few months. I am very frustrated about this. If anyone could give me any advice, it would be gratly appreciated. Thank you

It sounds like hives or urticaria, which is a hypersensitivity response to an allergen. You may want to see an allergist to find out what you are allergic to if you cannot determine a trigger on your own. There are a number of possible triggers - everything from animal dander or bites to cold or heat exposure, pressure, emotional stress, etc. In these cases, avoiding the offender is the best solution.
