Hi there. I m a twenty year old female. It seems I ve contracted a rash . I ve had shingles before, when I was 10, but I m assuming this is not the case since it s not only one one side - and though extremely itchy and slightly tingling , there isn t much pain until I scratch it. The rash(es) are scattered, but the bumps aren t clustered - some of the bumps are close together and some are a few inches apart. The bumps themselves look more like pimples . They ve been scabing, looking like they ll heal, but the just continue to spread. When spreading, the rash always starts on the left side, then moves to the right. So far, affected areas are: both of my forearms, my abdomen(near my bellybutton) leading up to the underside of my left breast, and the top of my left thigh. I entertained the idea of it being a reaction to a Tussock caterpillar I had picked up, but I highly doubt it would come to this degree. It s also been spreading at a concerning rate.
