Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

It's unusual but yes, you can have shingles without the usual rash.

It's called Zoster Sine Herpete. Simple translation: shingles without the rash.

Generally a person still has the other symptoms of pain and discomfort. See your doctor if you think you have shingles -with or without the rash.
