Shingles can be precipitated by another acute illness, including a throat infection or tonsillitis. Shingled can involve the nose and around the nostrils, although it will typically only affect one side. It would be atypical to only have blisters high up the nose as a manifestation of shingles. Therefore, it is possible to have shingles involvement of the nose while having a tonsillitis, but there may be another cause, depending upon the exact location of the blisters.
