I : I think it is important for you to see your doctor as soon as possible. With the history you have given, it is possible that you have temporal arteritis. This is a potentially serious inflammation of blood vessels in the head and face region. Another possibility is that you are experiencing the warning signs of an outbreak of varicella zoster otherwise known as "shingles". A shingles outbreak in the face is also a serious problem and must be treated promptly.
