Dermatology
In brief: Shingles
Three to four days after the prodomal stage, the shingles rash erupts.
Usually, it will be on only one side of the body. The rash is comprised of many tiny watery blisters that are more painful that they are itchy; the nerve roots that the varicella virus transverses often cause a sharp, pinlike sensation merely on palpation of the rash. The blisters scab in about 5-7 days.
