Maybe not shingles: You assume it's shingles. Some diseases resemble that. It would be rare to have shingle in a limited pubic area. You can take a friend or relative to be with you in the exam room when you see the doctor to make it less frightening for you. There is no home remedy for an I diagnosed disorder.
