Burning rashes on the shoulder spreading to armpit. What is it?

Hi i am 26 years old last summer i got a slight rash on my upper right shoulder near the armpit, it kinda looks like teeth bites. Then it started to spread on my right arm in certain spots. I went to the doctors and the ones on my arm went away. But the one near my armpit hasn't and when i wash it, it burns. I would really like to know what it is.

We're the skin eruptions present only on the right upper limb area. If so then it could have been Herpes Zoster and the present burning symptom could be post herpetic neuralgia. Please consult a dermatologist as soon as possible.
