In brief: Could be..
If the shingles rash was on your face, you can have pain and burning before the rash appears and after the rash disappears.
.. Sometimes for weeks to months afterwards. If you were treated early with antiviral medications, it makes it less likely that you will have lingering pain.

In brief: Only if a facial ner
Most common place for shingles is the trunk.
Face pain if it is in a facial nerve. Antiviral pills are most effective if started on the first or second day.

In brief: You Can
If the shingles target your facial area you can.
They can be in your eye, scalp, face, etc. Get the vaccine to be more protected. They can be devastating. Good Luck.
