I thought I had been bitten by something from my upper abdomen around to the middle of my back, but now I'm not sure. I have about twelve round red "bites" that are growing and itching and very sore. They are now odd shaped but I have no blisters. I'm having a shooting pain in the back. By the way, all of this starts from the middle of my abdomen, between my breasts, around the left side to the middle of my back. The two or three in the back are the biggest and the most painful. I can't wear a bra without pain, although I do it. I've put calamine on the ones I can reach. I live alone and I'm a 58 yo woman. I did have chicken pox at the age of 6. The places are bright red and on the big one in front, a part of it is almost numb if I rub my finger across it lightly. I am in misery. But doctor visits are very expensive on a tiny income. I will only go if I think it's necessary. Anyone ever have this? Thanks for any information.
