Brief Answer:
It looks like chicken pox

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM

I have gone through the picture and query.

Based on the picture and your symptoms, to me it looks like viral infection, may be chicken pox.

I would have treated you with antiviral after like aciclovir which is effective for shortening the duration of chickenpox symptoms.
For symptomatic relief taken paracetamol three times a day after food. I would have asked you to apply calamine lotion to the affected area, which has got soothing effect.

Drink plenty of fluids and take rest for few days. I would suggest you to see physician for the confirmation of diagnosis.

Hope this helps.
Take care

my dad s been sick with terrific rectum pains for about a week. He has no appetite; not really eating anything solid. Prior condition post neuralgia from chicken pox . Wondering if the neuralgia is spreading around in his body. Has had neuralgia in his head for one year. Recent pains are back and rib pains and now the problem with the rectum. Feeling like he has to poop but nothing. He is currently taking pain medicine, blood pressure med, plavix, lisonotrol, omegzipril?,metropolo?, Do you think it could be neuralgia in the rectum? Or do you think it might be something more serious.
