Can't tell: However early shingles may start with itching before the bumps turn dark and painful. Google a picture of dermatome and see if your lesions follow any of the dermatome pattern. If it does, early anti-viral treatment may reduce the intensity and complication of shingles. However if you have had the same lesions b4 at the same location, shingles would be unlikely. ...Read more

? iodide allergy: It sounds like a possible allergy to iodides (iodine-containing substances).

It is easy to treat but you will most likely need a prescription strength cortisone cream that only your doctor can prescribe.

Good luck. ...Read more

Possibly hives?: Hives are raised, itchy bumps caused by histamine (chemical released during an allergic reaction). Blocking histamine by taking an oral anti-histamine can help prevent new hives from forming, and help current hives fade away. For people over 2 yr old, oral zyrtec or Claritin (loratadine) can also be used. Sometimes Hydrocortisone 1% cream can decrease hives. If worried, one should see a doctor to be diagnosed. ...Read more
