Here you will find many of the conditions that can affect the stomach in adults. As a large area of skin, the stomach is subject to a multitude of skin conditions. Some of these skin conditions are more common to this area than others. For example, stretch marks (striae) are often seen on the stomach, which are usually the result of a sudden change in the tension of the skin, such as sudden weight loss or weight gain, growth spurts in teens, and the use of certain medications. Hot tub rash (Pseudomonas folliculitis) is a skin infection from bathing in water contaminated by certain bacteria that typically involves the stomach. Shingles (zoster) will also cause a very painful rash over one side of the stomach. Click the links below for information about these and other conditions.
