red rash over stomach area?

since a few days ago, i had a large red area over the skin around my whole stomach area- not like lumps or anything, my skin is smooth but red and occasionally very itchy and uncomfortable. 

on the afternoon it started, i had worn a shirt buried in the bottom of the drawer, and consumed some alcohol with some friends.

do you guys think the red area is a result of something I ate, or is it from some bugs or external factors?

thanks a lot!

Update:

theres no spots or anything on the skin either, its just red and itchy

    It sounds like some form of contact dermatitis.  Your skin was allergic to the shirt for some reason.  Laundry detergents are common causes.  Not sure why this shirt caused that result, though.
