Hi everyone, I've had this rash for 3-4 days now, terrible itching. Rash is on middle of my back some bumps are larger than others. My whole body is itching more than normal. smhair   I think I may be having flare-up coming on.  I've never had a rash on my back. No new Detergents or soaps. Does anyone get rash on their backs?
I'm still waiting for SSD hearing decision, my hearing was on 9/3/08, will let you all know when I hear something.
Have a Blessed Day

Does this 'rash' look like little blisters? And some bumps are larger than others?

You may have shingles -- get thyself to a dr, ASAP.

Shingles can result in permanent nerve damage (read permanent pain) if left untreated for too long!
