my skin appears normal. my skin hurts for my shirt to touch it on my back. now it has spreaded to my side. i am being treated for shingles but the treatment is not working. condition has lasted for 3 weeks.
Sounds like it is post herpatic neuralgis from the shingles. The shingles virus can effect the nerves and cause them to signal pain even though the rash has cleared. In some people this can go on for years. I hope this will not be so in your case. It can be treated with drugs like Lyrica and gabapentin or Neurontin. Talk to your healthcare professional for advice.
