I have recently noticed a rash forming on my shoulder.

I have recently noticed a rash forming on my shoulder. It was itchy and I thought that it might just be acne or maybe just an allergic reaction to something. My father is allergic to many things and typically get allergic reaction quite often. I have waited about two weeks for the rash to go go naway not using anything that possibly agitate it. Doesn’t seem to go away. I typically put cortisone on it at night and in the morning. Nothing seems to be working in face it seems to be spreading to my lower back and chest. What could it be? And what can I do to treat and prevent this breakout from happening again?

I recently was diagnosed with shingles. It began on my left inner wrist and spread upwards toward my shoulder. I took acyclovir. My son, 18, is now recovering from chicken pox. He was also prescribed acyclovir. My question - I get random spots on my arms and legs that itch/burn intensely then form blisters. is this my body still reacting to the shingles virus?

I was bit by a dog about 30 hours ago. The bite broke the skin on my shins where it occurred. I noticed just recently that an itchy rash has developed on my left arm and right shoulder blade. I ve never had a rash like this before. Could that be related to the dog bite?
