Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be a shingles bump or boil. The first sign of shingles is usually a background-color: #dae8f4'>tingling feeling, itchiness, or stabbing pain <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> the skin. After a few days, a background-color: #dae8f4'>rash appears as a band or patch of raised dots background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>on the side of the trunk or face. The background-color: #dae8f4'>rash develops into small, fluid-filled blisters which begin to dry out and crust over within several days. When the background-color: #dae8f4'>rash is at its peak, symptoms can range from mild itching to extreme and intense pain.
Avatar f tn I am a 39 year old woman who has had shingles off and <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'><span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span> now for 6 years.

I had already made an appt with her doctor for tomorrow to talk about her background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>on going back pain and wanted them to do some blood work. I bumped the appt up to today because the background-color: #dae8f4'>rash was gettting worse and she was in so much pain. At first the doctor didn't think it was shingles but then looked it up background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>on the website to double check before treating it for something worse. It was defintately shingles.

I went to urgent care, and after three secbackground-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>onds of examining, the doctor instantly Declared that I had Shingles. It is very very painful.

Avatar n tn Hello, Mostly shingles is accompanied by a very painful <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>rash</span>, but sometimes shingles pain occurs without a background-color: #dae8f4'>rash. This cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>onditibackground-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>on is known as zoster sine herpete. In the absence of a background-color: #dae8f4'>rash, pain in the chest or the back may be so severe as to occasibackground-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>onally be mistaken for a heart attack, a lung infectibackground-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>on or spinal problem. You can discuss this possibility with your dermatologist and get yourself prescribed for the treatment of shingles.

I would agree with her, however, looking at the background-color: #dae8f4'>rash background-color: #dae8f4'>background-color: #dae8f4'>on my neck, it does resemble shingles a lot!
