Shingles: What you are describing could well be an outbreak of shingles or Herpes Zoster. The condition is an infection affecting the insulating material surrounding a nerve fiber, causing swelling and corresponding pain and frequently inflammation or eruption of the skin along the course of the affected nerve. Best to have your doctor evaluate this right away.
