hello
For a week or so, i had a high fever and was coughing a lot! Now, I don't have fever but i still cough a little. Four days a go, i got a spot of rash on my belly a little bit bigger than thumb finger. So, i went tot he doctor and he said its shignles... he gave a medicine (Mylan-Valacyclovir) but this rash is not leaving and its getting a little bigger and more red! I never had this problem before and i'm worried about this rash... it hurts, burns, and itch but its bearable!

please help and let me know if you guys faced this problem and let me know how long this rash will last???
