Skin on left eyelid and around it down to my left nostril is sore and hurts to touch, like a sensitive burning pain. Skin looks totally normal. Help?

In brief: Trigeminal area?

Is this sensation constant, or on and off? How long has it been going on? Sometimes irritation to the trigeminal nerve, which supplies sensation to this area, can cause a symptom like this, on one side.
That could be why there is no change in the skin. If the symptoms have been happening a short time, a rash may still appear however.
