Many answers: Your questions covers a lot of ground. There are many things that can cause the skin to get inflamed from a sunburn to an allergic reaction to simply spending too much time in one position laying on that side. Does it itch, hurt, is it getting worse, better, what have you done for it, how long has it been there, etc. An in-person doctor visit will be your best bet to get the answer you want.

Med eval: Sorry - i think this one will require a thorough history and physical examination as well as labs since you indicate you have urinary frequency.
