It's Shingles. It's a form of adult chicken pox.

It does look like Shingles. Do they hurt?

Stay away from others or you'll pass it on. Wait for them to dry up.

Chicken pox will take about two weeks to dry up. I imagine it will take the same amount of time for shingles.

my son's lasted about 2 wks, but took a little longer to completely "dry-up'. also they might cause minor scarring, but please try to find the castor oil, it REALLY helped alot. Good Luck....Sandra
