I have a blister type rash that the blisters are matalic in color it is across my whole chest not to one side like shingles please help?

I have a blister type rash that the blisters are matalic in color it is across my whole chest not to one side like shingles please help?

Try domeboro: soaks to dry up blisters, but I would recommend figuring out the cause of the blisters. ( sun exposure, contact dermatitis, blistering disorder). See your derm when a blister is present and a biopsy can be done if necessary to determine what's going on. Doesn't sound like shingles but it isn't always on 1/2 of your body. ...Read more

Have had a dull pain on left side of my neck for 7 days. 4 days ago i noticed a small cluster of  6 blisters right in the middle of  chest. Shingles?

Likely not: Your question reveals a dull pain on lateral neck, then 4 days later a cluster of blisters in middle of the chest. Shingles is caused by the same virus as chicken pox, and lays dormant and usually strikes elderly people with weakened immune systems. Pain normally referred to as intense, and the blistering would not cross the midline, but be affecting a stripe unilaterally called a dermatome. ...Read more
