Causes...: Of itching without rash include medicines, foods, dust, pollen, and stress. It could also be an allergic reaction to something that contacted your skin and hasn't yet formed a rash (although any rash would probably have appeared by now).

Rash under right armpit, right shoulder and breast...Diagnosed as shingles but now have rash on left side in groin area? Can that still be shingles?
No absolutely not: Rash of shingles is raised and fluid filled. Most important it is extremely painful. You didn't mention pain so I assume that's not a factor. I know this is not shingles because it almost never appears in two dermatomes simultaneously due to the rapid immune response which contains the infection. Go see your dermalogist or fp. ...Read more

Burning sensation on skin of upper arm/shoulder for 2 weeks, but nothing there, skin looks completely normal. No rashes or other symptoms. What is it?
Neuropathy: Sounds like a nerve problem, so we'd call it neuropathy. It can be caused by anything damaging a nerve. Shingles or herpes can do this, but if it has been going on for 2 weeks I'd expect there to be spots or bumps or something showing on the skin by now. It can also be caused by your immune system attacking the nerve or by the nerve being pinched in your spine or elsewhere. See your doc for help. ...Read more
