Painful rash?

I came up with a rash that is actually quite painful and itchy. I have had shingles once and it's similar but it's been so long that I don't remember. I'm going to post 2 pics in my profile. One is from a couple days ago and one is today.
I can't tell if it's shingles or a fungal infection or what. I can't put pressure on it.

It does look like it could still be shingles.  With shingles it can be a full patch or just a few little lumps.  Had them under my eye once, about 5 lumps under my right eye, had no idea until I was at the doctors for something else!

I think that's what it is just because of how much it hurts. I'm inly 31 and this will be my second time with shingles
