  1. Do you mind telling me what stomachache and rash are in Japanese?

  2. “To have a stomachache” in Japanese is おなかが痛い (onaka ga itai). This pattern of “___ ga itai” is used for just about any kind of pain in Japanese. Just put the body part that hurts in the blank!
    “Rash” in Japanese is 皮疹 (hishin).

  5. How about saying:
    -I have a fractured part in my body? Or I am fractured?

    Comment by Akira on 05/23/2014 at 6:57 pm
  6. Fracture in Japanese is 骨折 (kossetsu). You can say, for example: 私の脚が骨折しています (watashi no ashi ga kossetsu shiteimasu) – my leg is broken/fractured. If you want to change the body part, just change 脚 (ashi) to a different body part.
