Hello,
Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be boils,infected hair follicles or shingles. Shingles is an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which is the virus that causes chickenpox. Shingles occurs in people who have had chickenpox and represents a reactivation of the dormant varicella-zoster virus.

I would suggest a dermatologist’s evaluation because the treatment is different for all and confirmation of diagnosis is necessary for the same.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Warm regards.
