Can this be Shingles....again?????

Hi all,
I don't exactly where to post this question, so I thought I would try here. I am 51 and had Shingles a year and a half ago. In the past couple of months I have had to take 2 Medrol Dosepaks (oral steroids) for a neck issue. I know steroids can make you very suseptible to getting infections. I now have 2 Shingle like bumps on my stomach on the left side (the same side I had the Shingles last time). I have had these bumps for 2 weeks now. Could this be a mild case of Shingles again??
