Low_back_pain
What you may be experiencing is something called "post herpetic neuralgia", which is a condition that can occur after an episode of shingles. It is a nerve pain and generally takes time to get better. Can be days, weeks, months or in rare cases, years. The treatment of choice for nerve related pains is something called Neurontin.

Dr. John T. Chiu answered:

I have a rash on my buttock...red, itchy and a few pustules...I have a picture - is there any way you could look at it and tell me what it might be?

No good way

Itching
It is difficult to tell what may be causing your problem since the most important part of making a diagnosis is getting a good history. For example, were you exposed to an environment full of insects prior to the rash? Did the pustules occur at the sites where you had scratched ? You need to see a doctor to sort this out.
