Dr. Sheila Clasbey is seeing instances of shingles rashes.
It is a burning rash in a strip or small area of the skin that doesn't cross the midline of the body.
Shingles can be prevented by getting the vaccine.
See your doctor at the very onset of symptoms so an antiviral can be prescribed. It will not cure the rash, but may make it less severe.
