I think I have shingles

Sorry to admins for second topic - thought it would be more appropriate here.

Well I've had a rash on my shoulder for 2-3days now, which has now got blisters and comes with a tingling burning pain and with dull aches on my bones (on the shoulder) which hurts to touch.

My worry is, still going into work with it. I'm seeing the doc tomorrow, and he might want me to take time off. Is it really important for me to stay away from others even if it is covered up?

Re: I think I have shingles

One of my co-workers had singles and there wasn't any problems with her coming into work. She took some med's for about 10 days and all was fine. Just like you the begining was just a little rash then it blistered up like a bad burn and itched.

Good luck.
