Rashes on chest and back, no itching, skin bruise

I have developed this rash on my chest (mainly on my right side) and also on my back (again on the right side) and in line with each other front to back, up and down, left and right. The rash really does not itch it more feels like my skin is bruised and sometimes makes me move my right arm around trying to work the soreness out of my shoulder blade area. Any ideas what this could be?

welcome to healthcare magic.

i will be glad to be of assistance.

since how long do you have the rash?

are there any fluid filled blisters?

if its of short duration and has fluid filled blisters it could be shingles or herpes zoster. it always occurs on one side of the body.

its important for your doctor to see the rash and then treat accordingly.
