Pain in shoulder and upper arm. Rash on arm. Do I need treatment?

I thought I had a small poison ivy rash on my arm . It s been a week now and I now believe it s a C5 shingles/ herpes zoster rash. I have pain in my shoulder since Sat (thought I slept wrong and stretched a muscle at first), now the pain is down my upper arm in addition to my shoulder. Do I need treatment or do I just wait it out? What are the risks?
