I think I have shingles

I got a rash on my breast and a couple of spots along my bra line. I put some steroid cream on it and took some benadryl. Two days later when it didn't go away I went to my PCP and was told it could be shingles or a virus. She gave me Valtrex and another sterid cream. I didn't know why I couldn't get a definitive diagnosis. Is there a test for shingles?
