Can Irritable Bowel Syndrome cause a rash?

I been having sharp pains in my stomach and a rash. I also have diarrhea, nausea, vomit, bloating, cramps, and gas. I have not been to the doctor yet but have a appointment. So I don't know if I have irritable bowel syndrome . This rash is on my belly right above my pants line below belly button it burns sometimes and itches.

IBS is not associated with a rash. You do have to worry about inflammatory bowel disease if the rash is associated with your GI symptoms.
