Could this be shingles?
I've had a burning sensation around the side of my right ribs that goes under my breast too. I've had that for about a week. Yesterday I noticed quite severe burning on my ribs directly under my right breast. It does not feel internal, it's definately the skin. When I had a look in the mirror, I noticed a patch of red rash. It's not very big, maybe a little bigger than a 50 pence piece! The rash appears to be tiny red bumps...they do not look like blisters though (no fluid in them) just little raised bumps. I have a band of skin sensitivity around my right ribs, the slightest touch feels like i'm sunburnt and if my bra or clothing brushes it, it feels very sensitive and burns. Thinking a trip to the dr my be on the cards tomorrow to check but any opinions appreciated in the meantime!
