In brief: Yes
Without seeing the rash it is impossible to know what the cause is.
A burning rash on one side of the body could be shingles and should be evaluated by a physician.

In brief: Shingles?
Shingles is a reemergence of the chicken pox virus.
It usually causes a painful localized blistery rash. If the rash is bothersome and not going away, i would suggest checking with your doctor.
