A:   Hello,
thanks for contacting askthedoctor.com


It is evident from the description that you have furnished that the lesion is reddish and is a clear fluid filled bleb which is spreading towards groin region in confluence. This description fits that of herpes zoster , however it has to be confirmed after a local examination by the physician and after a confirmatory fluid culture test .
You may have to be started on antivirals for 7-10 days to reduce the incubation period, but a local examination for confirmation is mandatory.
i hope i have answered your query,
wishing you health,
regards
