In brief: Zoster? Temporal art

This could represent herpes zoster, or a on diction called temporal arthritis.
See physician for treatment as soon as possible. For zoster oral antivirals are started within 3 days. For temporal arteritis the blood test will be abnormal and oral medications need to be started to prevent damage to eyes or blood vessels inside of head.
