Shingles is a viral infection that affects a small portion of the body, resulting in pain, burning and numbness, followed by the appearance of a red rash after a few days, according to Mayo Clinic. The rash eventually forms blisters that break open and itch. Some individuals also experience chills and fever, headaches and general achiness.
