I have a red blotchy rash on my right leg. Doesn't itch to bad. Could it be shingles

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

If you had the shingles vaccine, it's probably not shingles, unless it's a mild outbreak of it. A rash can be caused, directly or indirectly, by a bacterial, viral or fungal infection. Bug bites can often cause a rash, as can poison ivy, (though you say it's not very itchy). So, it can be hard to pin down the cause. Below is a resource that might help. If the rash worsens, see your doctor.
