Eczema? Put some moisturising lotion on it for now or maybe even aloe vera, and make a doctors appointment. You're fine, you probably juse have a skin irritation, don't freak out lol you'll be ok. The doctor can at least perscribe you a medication to make it better, as for the alcohol, i don't think that's a good idea. Alcohol is very drying to the skin and it can cause even more irritation, if that is in fact what it is. I've read that many people apply milk to their skin as an antiinflamitory...anyway, for all we know this rash will be gone by tomorrow, if it isn't, call for an appointment. good luck!

Is it all over your stomach or on just one side? I had that a while back and my doctor said it looked like shingles. So I went to this really idiotic moron who claimed he was a dermatologist and he told me it was triggers. I don't think it was but anyways..I wouldn't apply anything to it because you don't know what it is. If it doesn't clear up in a couple of days go to your doc because it could be something serious like shingles (which I doubt because you are so young) but better safe than sorry, right?

I believe shingles is symmetrical..meaning it would only be on one half of your stomach, right or left side. I doubt you have that since you're only <deleted> but my doc said it was possible. Anyways, I wouldn't worry about it. Probably just a rash but get it checked anyway if it doesn't go away on its own in a few days. Oh and I really wouldn't put anything (ie: alcohol, lotion) on it since you don't know what it is. Good luck

Actually many years ago, a friend's little brother (who was a toddler at the time) had shingles. I really don't know much of anything about shingles, though.
