Does red bumpy rash on stomach indicate shingles?

Hi, I have a small red bumpy rash on the left side of my stomach. Itis not that itchy but I have been feeling not quite myself. Not unwell as such but not 100%. I was a tender over my ribs last night but that has improved today and now only slightly sore. Do you think this could be shingles?

Hello,Welcome to the HCM.
Since cause of your symtoms can also be other than shingles,e.g Herpes,fungal infection,T.B (bone pain) and so on.
Any skin signs has to be evaluated by doctor nearly to rule out the cause,so it can be prevented from further detoriating.It can not be diagnosed without looking at the signs.My suggestion would be get checked by nearby dermatologist to rule out the cause.
