My 23 year old son has just been diagnosed with shingles. He has blisters all over his right buttock. He has had them for about 2 months and he thought they were excma or an allergic reaction to washing powder, but they then turned black and his girlfriend who works in a hospital insisted he saw his GP. He was diagnosed with shingles and advised to take some time off work as he said he was amazed he had been able to carry on with his condition.
Its a pretty bad rash but what concerns me is I can find no mention of shingles turning black and want reassurance as his mum that this isnt an indication of something serious like septicemia
