Have blisters along side of stomach, burning sensation. How to get rid off it?

I think I have the shingles/not sure. I have blister( pimples ) that pop up one at a time. Have no bubble in them and just a head. Two on my back and the other three at the side of back but along side of stomach . all on the right side. Little pain more a burning sensation. I am applying fresh cut aloe vera plant at least four times a day. the ones closer to my stomach has dried up but the two big ones (which have gone done tremendously) is still red and slowly healing . Am I doing the right thing by thing by applying the aloes to the pimples. Based on what I am seeing on line I think I have the mild form of shingles. What do you recommend?

Thanks for the query,

You might be suffering from shingles.

Your description matches with that.

It is a viral infection and you need treatment with anti virals like acyclovir.

Also take an antihistamine tablet.

This will give you some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
