This is Dr. David

a slight line blister rash which is sore can be a sign of shingles rash on the skin

how old is your boyfriend?

can you upload a clear jpg photo of the rash here online so I can see it?

It is not sore, it doesn't irritate him at all. He is 32.

that could be dermatitis from irritation or allergy.

that looks like it is at his waist line

new pants or a new belt could be irritating his skin there at that line.

new detergent washing his clothes or bet bathing suit on that area for too long can cause a line irritation like that at his waist line.
