Just diagnosed with shingles this week although I had the rash which I thought was a spider bite that got infected 2 1/2 weeks ago. Pain started over the weekend upper back radiating to front ribs where rash is. ER really dropped the ball and said it was thoracic strain (Sunday night). Saw my Dr on Tuesday and he said, "classic shingles".
Question: will I develop a rash on my upper back area too? On Acyclovir and Prednisone. Zostrix cream turn my skin red hot and burning so quit using it per Dr. Office and my own self. Also, once I finish Prednisone will pain return? Right now all is pretty good but I don't want to get my hopes up.
