Detailed Answer:
hello and thank you for sending the question.

Your symptoms may represent early signs of shingles. This is a rash caused by a virus. I would recommend that you contact your primary care physician for a physical examination as soon as possible. If this is a case of shingles and then an antiviral medication may help shorten the duration of your symptoms.

thank you again for sending your question.
