  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • A rash developed on both sides of my stomach, just above the hip bone. It resembles contact dermititis, but i was not exposed to anything out of the ordinary.

    It forms small watery filled blisters that itch, and later form a tiny scab.

    It is only localized to the area above the hip.
