I am a 55 year old male. Developed a rash

I am a 55 year old male. Developed a rash or some kind of reaction about my low back on my right side. It was about 3X4 inches. It started about 4 days ago. No I have low back pain on the right side. Which I have had in the past. There is also swelling/numbness heading up along the right side of my spine. Not sure what I have. There was ichiness and some pain. It did not look like the pictures of poison ivy,oak or sumar or look like shingles. Although there is some localized pain at the rash it is tolerable. What do I have?

My brother is a known drug user. He has Hep-C. He just got out of jail last week. This past weekend he developed a rash on upper torso, neck and inside mouth. His right hand is obviously swollen and red. Parents took him to walk-in clinic. His blood pressure was low but his pulse rate was high. Nurse Pract said to go to ER. Well he refused due to lack of insurance. I saw him yesterday and he seemed better but still had swollen right hand and I believe he still had rash... Parents are at a loss, he is a 55 year old male. Any ideas?
