The shingles rash can
appear anywhere on the body but will only be on one side of the body, the left
or right. It will be in a band, a strip, or a small area. Before the rash
occurs, there is usually itching, tingling, or pain in that area. The rash
turns into blisters after several days. It is possible to have the shingles
rash in more than one area.
