Shingles on buttocks, white blisters, itchy, had chicken pox. Used benadryl. What is wrong?

I think I might have shingles on one side of my buttocks. I have breakouts especially when I'm stressed. It doesn't really hurt, but it itches and I have small white blisters with it. I use Benadryl Cream on it to help the itching. Is this shingles? I had chicken pox when I was young. I'm 44 now and have had these outbreaks for quite a few years now.

Hi actually shingles occurs only once in life time.if it occurs for multiple times it is due to immunocomprimisation or it cannot be shingles.according to ur description it might be tinea corporis with secondary bacterial infection.try antibiotic twice daily and application of fudic cream in the morning and fintop cream in the niht along with flucanozole 150mg weekly once.atarax 25 mg at night can cure it
