abdominal pain and red spots
Jun 14, 2011

I have had lower mid to lower right rib cage pain on and off for the last ten years, without seeing a doctor. I'm now noticing small red spots appearing on my stomach and arms. What do you think this is?

Response from Dr. McGovern

There is really no way to diagnose your problems over the internet. Even a healthy person should get a yearly checkup. I would suggest that you establish a primary care doctor for yourself.
