Can it be on the palm of one hand?
Yes, shingles can appear on the palm. Generally shingles can appear anywhere.
Can it be under one breast then move to the other breast?
Yes, that is possible .However, it is infrequently seen.
Can you have shingles on your but
Yes, it might happen in some conditions. The symptoms of shingles on the buttocks are the same as with other outbreaks along the body. Painful, itchy, and sometimes numb sores break out resulting in a rash and blisters. Outbreaks are generally contained within one region which is connected to the infected nerve. Painkillers or a prescription strength topical ointment can be recommended or prescribed as needed. If you experience reoccurring episodes of shingles, a doctor may recommend that you take daily antivirals as a preventative measure. Keeping a wound dry, clean, and dressed can encourage a swift healing process and alleviate symptoms naturally as much as possible.
I have a little bit of pain under my breast and a little rash had a blister bump for a couple days is this a early sign of shingles???
Maybe, it could also be chickenpox. You don't have to panic. Watch it first. If it gets worse, you can check your blood routine.
Can you get shingles under your arms?
Symptoms occur in the area of skin that is supplied by the affected nerve fibers. The usual symptoms are pain and a rash. Occasionally, two or three nerves next to each other are affected. Very rarely, shingles can affect both sides of the body, but this is usually in people with a weakened immune system.

The most commonly involved nerves are those supplying the skin on the chest or tummy (abdomen). The upper face (including an eye) is also a common site.

The pain is a localized band of pain. It can be anywhere on your body, depending on which nerve is affected.

The rash typically appears 2-3 days after the pain begins. Red blotches appear that quickly develop into itchy fluid-filled blisters. The rash looks like chickenpox but only appears on the band of skin supplied by the affected nerve.

It might also take place under the arm.
Does shinglesappear onback of neck and in the head of your hair
Yes, since it is a disease with nerve involvement, it can present on the back of your neck. Usually it will present in a line that is along a nerve.
But you say head of hair? what do you mean, this disorder will not involve hair though.
It can be treated by ganciclovir and vitamin B12 is always used to prevent nerve sequela.

Please show me pictures of shingles rash and
Shingles, or herpes zoster, occurs when the dormant chickenpox virus, varicella zoster, is reactivated in your nerve tissues. Early signs of shingles include tingling and localized pain.
Most, but not all, people with shingles develop a blistering rash. You may also experience itching, burning, or deep pain.
Typically, the shingles rash lasts two to four weeks, and most people make a complete recovery.
Doctors are often able to quickly diagnose shingles from the appearance of the rash.
When tingling starts, is there anything to stop the shingles?  I have tingling in face just beside mouth on left side. About the size of a half dollar for about two weeks now
Acyclovir ointments would probably be helpful.
Shingles can be divided into 3 stages, the prodromal stage, the active stage and the postherpetic stage. You are in the prodromal stage, with main symptoms of severe pain or tingling. Although it can not be stopped, application of acyclovir, valacyclovir, or famciclovir could mitigate the symptoms and facilitate healing.
Should I pop the blisters!  To possibly dry them out faster
How did the blisters happen? Burn? Allergy? Or infection? If the blister is large and full of fluid, you may pop it but not to remove the blister wall. If the blisters become worse, you are suggested to see a dermatologist for treatment.
The blister is due to Shingles.  Really bad ugly shingles!
Blisters,  I have it up my neck on my shoulder over deltoid and left side of chest.  All is left side with my ear hurting painfully but no signs of rash on my ear.  The pain is located inside my ear.
The ear pain is frequently seen in patients with shingles, which means the virus may also involve the nerve of the ear part. For patients with ear pain should be treated more aggressively. What medications are you taking now? medications such as pregabalin, mecobalamine and valaciclovir.
Famciclovir started med on Monday at the first sign of the rash(it was small at that point , now neck shoulder chest). I have a sore throat on the left side too but attribute it to me ear draining down my throat.
Drain from ear to the throat? you'd better to go to see an ENT doctor to have a double check. It might also be induced by the shingles.
I think it’s from the shingles.  I’m following up with my GP after I’ve finished with the anti-viral.
