Yes, they can fully diagnose if it IS shingles, and if it is they can offer help for the pain and blistering as well.
Yes you should seek medical attention. You do not need to go the ER or wait a week for your regular doctor to squeeze you in. You can go to an urgent care clinic (many are found in the big chain pharmacies).
Absolutely. Adults who have never ha chicken pox or the vaccination can DIE from being exposed. Help yourself and think of others as well.
Unless you’re in your 60’s, you *probably* don’t have shingles. If you are a teenager who had the chicken pox immunization, it is highly unlikely that you have shingles. If you are in your 60’s or older, it could be shingles. See a doctor.
Yes, it’s painful so go get meds. I got them in aug in az while it was 115 out in the middle of a move & I wasn’t in my 60’s. I first thought I had a bad heat rash & then heat stroke.
