What does Herpes Zoster Look Like?

A herpes zoster is a shingle and doesn’t look like a herpes blister that you normally would think of but is caused by the same virus either. Shingles looks like a rash and is very, very painful and comes from the same family that causes chickenpox. Once the rash starts to subside, it will then turn into blisters and last for a couple weeks – they then go away after 3 to 4 weeks.
