one day i woke up with small rashes on my arm. since then it has spread. they are just tiny bumps for every pore in the area. it also has some redness and doesn't look like its healed at all. i went to the doctor and she says it looks like shingles. i looked up shingles and it def. doesn't look anything like shingles to me. not to mention it appears for people over 60 and i'm only 17. the medication she gave me has not helped and it's only gotten worse since.

i haven't done anything different and i'm not allergic to anything as far as i know. i also rarely go outside so i'm at a loss to what this is. please help. any suggestion is useful.

some pics.
