it's not likely this is herpes or shingles at all. showing up on multiple body parts like this is very , very uncommon.
I recommend going to be seen elsewhere tomorrow for a more thorough work up to find out what is going on.
best of luck and stop back and let us know how it goes :)
She also mentioned it could be impetigo. I've never really seen this so I'm not sure? Whatever it is it spreads when it comes into contact with an unexposed surface!
ask your doctor to swab the blisters for both herpes and shingles, this way she/he will be able to confirm the visual diagnosis.
giving you loads of diagnosis possibilities is not very helpful. =) we all want direct answers.
I went back to the doc today and she sent pictures to several other doctors and they all said It is shingles. Just good to know!! Glad it isn't Herpes! I was scared my kids would get it!! :)
it's too bad it wasn't cultured before you started acyclovir to confirm it. having shingles on 2 totally different dermatones is not likely.
