    Hi Sophie,

    I would get another opinion (see another dr), I dosn't sound like shingles to me, and could simply just be a rash. What does the rash look like? I bunch of spidery lines, or little bumps or what? Typically shingles covers more then just a wrist.

    The rash is about the size of 2 50 oence peices an its red with little yellow blisters, im not in any pai, which readin up it sounds like i would be with shingles but ive also read since postin this that if it is shingles then it wouldnt affect my unborn baby cos ive already had chickenpox which i have! i got this from nhs direct

    I'd call NHS DIrect and check, then they can see if you need to see a doc over the weekend.
