I have this rash on my lower stomach were I fasten my jeans it's very itchy and I scratch it until it's starts oozing a clear fluid. It seems to be spreading up toward my naval. It goes and comes but is very irriating. I noticed that it's spending in little pimples some are combined maybe with 3 little pimple-like in a circle then its some small pimple like spreaded randomly on my stomach which are also itchy. What could this be?

This discussion is related to itchy rash on chest, stomach, breast has been spreading.

Skin rashes are diagnosed clinically based on the history and appearance of the rash. However, it seems that you might be having some type of dermatitis such as allergic contact dermatitis or irritant dermatitis due to the repeated injury to the skin in your naval/waist region. It may also be folliculitis due to trauma/ infection of the hair follicles. Folliculitis is usually a superficial infection caused by staph bacteria.

You should try to wear loose clothing and apply some local over the counter antibiotic cream for a few days. If however, you find no relief in symptoms or the infection spreads, you should consult a doctor.

Do write in if you need some more information.
