Weird rash?

I had a weird rash pop up almost a week ago. I'm the only one who has. I don't know what it is. It's raised up, bumpy, red, looks like it may have blisters on it, and itches like crazy. I shower daily and have not been in any wooded areas. Does anyone have any idea of what it could be. Pics in replies.

And before someone says it I don't have medical insurance and can't afford a doctor visit right now.

My guess (not a medical professional, in case you didn't know) is that it's a common heat rash or a reaction to some soap or other product.  Hydro-cortisone cream.

Shingles is what came to my mind. A friend had something that looked just like that & she said the itching was horrendous...it was shingles.

I've been using that. It isn't helping and sometimes makes it itchier. :/

Isn't shingles the rash you can only get if you've had chicken pox? I can't remember. If so it can't be that I've never had chicken pox.
