In brief: Rash or pain

The physical manifestations of shingles , usually rash and small papules ( fluid filled blisters) last a few days to a week.
The pain of shingles if not treated early and aggressively, can lead to a condition called post-herpetic neuralgia. This condition can be very difficult to treat.
