Shingles?: A blistery type of rash with a burning sensation sounds like shingles. Consider a Prime Consult to have it evaluated. There are a few small studies that suggest that Silvadene dream can shorten the course faster than the antiviral drugs. Trying both would be an option as well. If not shingles, a consult can help sort out what the rash could be.
