Depends: On what it iis. Poison ivy rash-calamine. If shingles, then nothing and see your doctor. If reaction to something topical or systemic, steroid cream or oral steroids. Point is, it could be many different things and it needs to be looked at to decide the best treatment. ...Read more

Chickenpox: Vaccine as with any other vaccines can cause redness and slight swelling at the site of shot. The first vaccine will give you 95% protection and close to 100% the second time around. Some people will come down with mild chickenpox after the shot. If not sure, please consult with your physician. ...Read more

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

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
