What can I put on or take to get rid of sharp pain? I have a rash with blisters on rib cage under the left breast and it's very painful.

?Shingles

Rash
Go see your DR. This could be shingles/ Herpes Zoster, a viral infection resulting from reactivation of the same virus that causes chickenpox. Take ibuprofen for now if you have no allergies or you're not taking warfarin/coumadin. Take care!

Feels like left side of throat is swollen. Travels to lung area not sure if it is the lung or rib cage,but there are random periods of sharp pain?

See a doctor

Pharynx
If this has developed suddenly you may have a tonsil infection or other serious infection. You need a good exam. It's possible this is all due to a cold or virus. If the swelling seems fairly remarkable go see a doctor today or tomorrow.

Why when i workout, I get a sharp pain in my right side under the rib cage then a sharp shooting pain from that area to my right shoulder blade?

Options

Extremity-joint-shoulder
This could be muscle spasm, neck problem, shoulder problem, or even a spinal disc pushing in a nerve when you lift heavy things. I would suggest anti inflammatories, rest , lower wring the intensity of your work out. If it does not improve, see a PT or your doctor for better eval

What could be causing sharp pain under my left rib cage?

Hard to know

Pneumonia
Left upper quadrant pain often poses difficulty in diagnosis. Things that live there are the kidney and tubes from the kidney, the spleen and the bowel. The ribs themselves can be a problem as could pneumonia. If not immediately relieve with OTC pain meds, simple dietary changes and GI meds, then seek care soon.
