In brief: Painful rash

If it's just on one side, i'd worry this was shingles and would encourage you to get someone to start treatment right away.
If it's on both sides, it could be an allergic reaction to something that got on your skin. There are a lot of other conditions that can cause painful rashes but most need to be seen to be diagnosed.
