Rash on collar bone, shingles, valacyclovir, painful blister

I went to the doctor about a month ago with a severe rash on my collar bone that the doctor assumed was shingles . He put me me on valacyclovir and the rash went away within a week. One month later it came back in the same spot only it is much more severe with painful blisters. I sell industrial paints and have limited exposure to isocyanates and solvents. I am wondering if this type of rash could result from that kind of exposure
