Shingles rash reopening
I got shingles last year after a bout of pneumonia. The shingles case left me with about six scars on my side from the rash. The scars started bleeding and look like they've opened up again. Is this another course of shingles or is it possible the scars just ripped open?

Thanks for the query. Thats a very limited description to make any comments. I can suggest you to see a dermatologist for a diagnosis and treatment plan. Delaying may not be a good option unless you know what the diagnosis is. Hope it helps you.
