Please help, could this be shingles?

Posted , 2 users are following.


I woke up one morning with two of the bumps. they've been increasing in number and area covered over the last couple of days, ranging from by back to lower tummy on my right side. They dont burn but are pretty itchy when they do itch, which is not much, like 5-10 times a day. wondering if this could be shingles?
