Have rashes with bumps on leg. Diagnosed as shingles. Blood work done to check anaemia. Any suggestion?

I have a rash on my right leg size of a quarter with bumps on it since saturday. went to dr today they thought it was shingles , didn t medicate me because I have no pain. But i just noticed another rash arising on my left arm quarter size this has a dark circle around it with a welt. I got blood taken today around that area to check my anemia I don t know if that has something to do with it.
