I have a painful rash on the right side of my body. What could I have?
Answer: If you’ve had chickenpox, you could have shingles (herpes zoster), which can occur when the virus that causes chickenpox starts up again in your body. When shingles affects the face, symptoms include headache and sensitivity to light. Other signs can be flu-like symptoms and a noncontagious rash with raised, red bumps and blisters that often appear as a band or strip on one side of the body.
