Rash on shoulder blades and spine

My daughter who is 39, has a rash that is itchy, dry,blotchy red, & scaly, and a very light burning feeling on her back at the shoulder blade level and runs down the middle of the back.  She never noticed it before today (2-3-08), when it started to itch.  She had shingles when she was in her teens and is worried about it returning.

There are no pimples, or hives, nor is it ***** or runny.
She hasn't changed any habits, food, detergents, or anything else, except she is visiting in Chicago from Baltimore this week and sheshe said she used her mother-in-law's shampoo lsat night and woke up with the rash.

Could it be from the shampoo and show up this quickly?.

Thanks for any insite you may offer.
