Shingles is a infection which affects only one dermatome. People get lesions after you have an infection of chicken pox which lives in the cell body of the nerve. Then, you will get the chicken pox virus spreading through the nerve. Please see a Doctor to confirm the diagnosis. All the best.
Hope this helps you.
