Thanks for contacting HCM
You are concerned about your mother recently developing pain and a rash. This rash as you describe it sounds like shingles. Shingles is caused by the chicken pox virus and can re-emerge years later. The shingles is a red rash with blisters and moderate to severe pain in the rash area. This can be treated with antiviral medications and pain medications. I recommend that she seek medical attention immediately so she can start treatment right away and get relief for the pain.
