What could this be?

My skin has been driving me potty since the middle of January and tonight I just realised how I could see for myself what it looks like by using the photo booth.

I had a shingles jab in October and then the second one on the 11th Feb a good month after the itching started. There are no other symptoms, just itching and these spots over my back, some on my arms and the backs of my hands look terrible.

I have an appointment with the dermatologist on the 4th of March, but sods law it will be gone by then.

Any ideas? will I live?

Lack of chips would be my guess Jan.

Ray.

p.s. they are nothing like the red blotches my wife had with her shingles.

Your pic doesn't look that much different from the one here Jan https://www.google.com/search?q=shin...0fsZNGLBZz3MMM

So it could be shingles perhaps brought on by the first jab and therefore not as severe, not as many spots, I have got a blisters looking circle on one arm, but other than the itching no pain or fever as I think is normal with shingles.
Thanks for finding that Jean, the pictures I had seen before that one were a lot worse, perhaps I didn’t look hard enough.

I still donīt know what it is.

Dermatologist appointment for tomorrow was postponed last week, go today and wait, oh ye, 17 people in front of me, she will only see 15 people the rest of us just clear off, come back in 2 weeks time. I rang when I was home and made an appointment for the 29th March, "But you can also come on the 17th and wait" what like today says I and then be sent away again, go and see your GP, tell her to give you cortisone tablets and hopefully it will get rid of the itching. So I now have cortisone tablets and cream, go to the doctor again on Friday to see if this is helping.
Itīs so annoying because other than my arthritis that I just have to live with, thereīs nothing else wrong.

No they werenīt lying down canīt get it to stand up straight, as the gardener said.

I sympathise, I have psoriasis and eczema, & loads of other stuff, but the skin issues drive me insane some days, I do have a cream that always works, but it makes my skin extremely wrinkly, and it is awful to apply.
