Both my son and I have been or pulimcort for years, but experience no rashes. Are you sure it is not a allergy rash to something else.


Shingles will appear like blisters and only on one side of your body (don't cross the midline). I had it over xmas. Contact ure dr if ure unsure as if you catch it early enough they can prescribe anti virals.

Hope that helps a little bit.
