    Does this look like a pressure sore or a rash?

    This is on my lower back, so not a spot I sit on. The first picture is from yesterday and the other is from this morning. To me it looks more like a rash. I have gotten similar looking things like it in that area, but not usually that red. I wear an abdominal binder with a piece of sheepskin on the inside on the back.

      I have had chickenpox. Can shingles happen at any age?

        I had shingles when I was aged 60. The blisters were quite a bit larger than what you show. And over a larger area, though I believe that varies a lot.

          my wife just had it, and it looked a lot like that. It comes in all sizes and can happne at any age.

          Of course it could be a basic rash, too.

            Might be a localized skin infection. I was thinking bug bite until I saw that little white bumps. MRSA is very common. They have outbreaks at schools all the time. Folliculitis maybe?? I would get it checked though. They can swab it really easy at your doctor's office.

              Impossible to tell from just a photo. Shingles will follow a nerve path. You need to get a swab or scrapping of the area by a physician to get a more definite diagnosis. Meanwhile don't let anyone near you who has not had chicken pox or had the vaccine.
