... doctor after about 5 days, who prescribed antiviral meds, and predizone. The pain and serious itching cleared up, however I still have red blotchy patches where the blisters were (on my right side in the chest, shoulder, and neck area). They also itch occasionally.

Your answers will be greatly appreciated:)
