This does not look like shingles.

Shingles is a blistery rash spread out like a nerve.

This looks like a skin infection. In fact it looks like a recurrence of the Erysipelas.

You should consult your GP for this as soon as possible, you will need antibiotics for this.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.
If you need more help, please let me know so l can continue to assist you.
Thank you and I wish you the best of health - stay safe!
