Is this shingles?

I found four small red bumps in a C shaped line on my stomach yesterday morning. The doctor or nurse I saw said it was probably shingles. I have had symptoms of a cold for the past week starting with a sore throat. But I have no pain or itching or tenderness and just the same four bumps a day later. So, could this diagnosis be wrong?

Re: Is this shingles?

Went for a second opinion at a different clinic. Not shingles - wrong direction and not the right characteristics!

So much for the first diagnosis.

Re: Is this shingles?

could be... I had them one time last year. Once you start experience a fever + headache x10000 Then you know you have them for sure. Best to go see a doctor unless you want to experience what I had to go through
