In brief: Shingles symptoms
Early symptoms of shingles include headache, sensitivity to light, and flu-like symptoms without a fever.
You may then feel itching, tingling, or pain where a band, strip, or small area of rash may appear several days or weeks later. A rash can appear anywhere on the body but will be on only one side of the body, the left or right. The rash will first form blisters, then scab over.
