Symptom vid bältros

A skin rash is typical of shingles but the first symptom noticed is usually discomfort or sometimes severe pain in an area of the skin, with no visible signs. It can be very difficult to diagnose shingles solely on the basis of these symptoms as they are often very vague. After a couple of days, however, redness appears on the skin at the site of the pain, and the typical skin rash with fluid-filled blisters associated with shingles appears.
