Just wanting to know what rashes there are that resemble or are similar to Shingles. I have had this rash for 16 weeks and it will not go away. Anti viral meds didn't do anything...creams and all that doesn't do anything. I have pics of it in my profile. It's not contagious as my husband hasn't gotten it. I've been told by my doc that I have shingles but having the rash that long is unheard of. But he didn't do bloodwork. I'm frustrated and so confused! :(
