Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A rash on the skin resembling prickly heat that is painful and stiff on one side of the stomach to the back can indeed indicate shingles (shingles, shingles). This condition can attack those who have previously had chicken pox.
The chickenpox virus that previously infected the body can stay (dormant) in the body for some time, to be precise in the nerve fibers close to the brain and spinal cord. When the sufferer's immune system decreases, for example due to fatigue, lack of nutritional intake, taking immune system suppressant drugs, or suffering from certain illnesses, this virus can experience reactivation and symptoms of Herpes zoster develop. Not only rashes on the skin, people with Herpes zoster will generally experience various other complaints, namely muscle and joint pain, more sensitivity to light, dizziness, headaches, weakness, and so on.
Even so, you also need to know, that in addition to Herpes zoster, complaints like what you experience can also occur due to other factors, for example impetigo (bacterial infection), folliculitis (hair root infection), contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with substances that are allergenic or irritative), and so on.
Therefore, you should not use any medication before it is clear the exact cause of your complaint, namely by checking with your doctor first. Acyclovir is not included in the class of over-the-counter drugs that can be consumed independently without a doctor's prescription. This drug is useful in dealing with infections caused by viruses, including Herpes zoster, but it does not necessarily solve other possible causes as mentioned above. Therefore, it is safer if you check with your doctor first. The doctor who will prescribe the drug will explain directly how to take the correct drug for your condition who is fasting.
In the meantime, take better care of your personal hygiene, namely by regularly showering and changing clothes regularly. Avoid rubbing the rash that appears excessively, so it doesn't break and become irritated. Also avoid sprinkling or rubbing anything on the rash if it is not recommended by your doctor. Maintain your immune system by drinking lots of water, eating healthy and nutritious foods, and not doing activities that are too tiring.
