If a rash breaks out from here, see MD right away, I would be concerned you might be immune-suppressed. Of course other ailments could cause, and be very benign. Also, if it is shingles, earlier the treatment, the better. This is always perplexing. Get well. Happy New Year. ...Read more

For the short term, cool the rash with a cold pack and apply a mild over-the-counter steroid preparation (as long as there is no break in the skin where the rash is). ...Read more
