I am experiencing skin pain on my right flank that hurts even when my shirt touches it. I do not have a rash that I can see. What's the cause?

I am experiencing skin pain on my right flank that hurts even when my shirt touches it. I do not have a rash that I can see. What's the cause?

Early shingles??: Not certain, but it does sound like local nerve irritation, especially because of the super-sensitivity. 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

Burning rash: Painful rashes with small blisters on one side of the buttock, trunk or face should always be considered for shingles and treated within 72 hours to reduce risk of permanent nerve damage. Fungal rashes of the skin are best treated with otc terbinafine, and covering with zinc oxide ointment like desitin to protect. If the steroid/antifungal cream isn't working, best to see a dermatologist. ...Read more
