help what is this? shingles?


please could you help i hate having to go to the doctors!

Over the last week i have experienced blisters around the top of my legs thighs and mid tummy.

THey are little water blisters which pop at the slightest touch, itch and then scab. they are really worrying me because some are in between my thighs and rub when i walk.. I dont usually rub there but with the warm weather it really hurts.

I have been in contact with someone who's mum has just recovered from shingles. not in a full contact way but does this sound like shingles? I dont really suffer from anything else other than i am really tired at the moment.

I havent been sexually active for over 3 months and can rule out any infection that way but it is really worrying me

any advice would help thanks!

Re: help what is this? shingles?

hi.. in my opinion you have no need to worry... your problem sounds exactly like shingels... when shingels are healing the blisters pop and scab over.. the ones on your thighs probably are not getting the chance to heal.. try wearin losse cotton like trousers... like linen to avoid them rubbing... hope i helped...
