Hello from ja
Is there any other discharge to this?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no there is no discharge
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 5 years ago.
Does the rash have little red bumps? If so, it could be an outbreak of shingles. If this is the case you should be examined by your internal medicine MD
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 5 years ago.
If started early enough there are medicines that can shorten the duration of the outbreak and also minimize the chance of having post herpetic neuralgia.

Should your vision become affected, or your eye get red it would be important for you to be examined by an ophthalmologist to make sure everything is OK with you eye.

Does this make sense to you?
