Itching, burning, pain in lower legs, cold sore on lips. Due to shingles?

Hi I have a question about my 84 old grandmother. She has been complaining about itching and burning and pain in her lower legs. When she takes an antibotic that the doctor gives her it goes away for a while but it comes back. No one can tell her what it may be. This breakout she had a cold sore appear on her lip. I think she may have shingles .
