Shingles relapse in new place?

I had my first case of shingles a few weeks ago on my left side--a small cluster of blisters. It wasn't too painful. I finished the Famvir on Dec 25.

A few days later I seem to have a new single blister on my hand. Just today there seems to be one popping up on my knee. They hurt!

Is it possible for it to come back so quickly, and in a different place--odd places too on hand and knee. I am on immunosuppressant medication. I guess go back to the doc??
Thanks!
