Weird rash after taking antibiotics

This very localized rash appeared on my left side after taking some antibiotics. Then, two months later, it reappeared in the exact same location after taking a different antibiotic. What is it? [picture included]

After taking two kinds of antibiotics (azithtomycin and penicillin) on two separate occasions, these tiny white bumps started showing up on my left side (at about belly button height). They spread a little bit, and the area around them turned red and slightly itchy.
They only showed up in this one spot, and nowhere else.
It's not very itchy, but the first one left some really annoying discolored patches after it went away. The second one (which started a couple days ago) is the one I took a picture of
The reasons I was taking antibiotics were pretty unrelated (pneumonia, then strep throat). Also, they showed up at the exact
same spot. I showed my doctor, and he said it looked like shingles, but I kind of doubt it...
Any idea what this is?
