Over the last few days I've had a really bad itching sensation on my shoulder and thought it was just bite from a flea of some sort. However, upon examination revealed loads of red spotted lumps grouped together. They feature a burning sensation and blisters on top. Over today and yesterday, I have been having frequent tingling and aches in my bones on the shoulder - hurts to touch.
I told some friends and they said it could be shingles. My worry is my job - having time off, I don't want to let people down and feel like I am dumping all the hard work on them. I haven't seen the doctor yet, I will be the next day, but I am worried he will ask me to take time off. Do you think I should stay at home until I am better? Or would I be okay to go into work still?
