So I got this raised rash on the back side of my leg. It's burns and is itchy every now and again. It's been there for almost 4 days without too much sign of improvement except the burning has gone down. I've been rubbing vitamin E oil on it and that seems to be helping with the burning, but it's getting itchier. Before the rash appeared I felt ill and under the weather. I was wondering if this is a mild form of shingles or something else.
