Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Shingles is unlikely since not painful.
Also blisters are typical for shingles in a band like distribution.
Itchy rash is likely something else --can be bug bite, or contact dermatitis or heat rash.

Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
