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

I'm a 22 year old varsity athlete but once in a while I get a really sharp pain on my right side under my rib cage that stays for about 5-10 sec.

Pain when healthy

Pain
HI I think this is normal or natural. You could be not keeping up with your rehydration taking in enough fluids or the electrolytes you sweat away when you are active. Your symptoms may very well just be a muscle spasm that will go away with good nutrition, hydration and stretching.

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!
