In brief: Muscle Strain

There is not much in that area.
You could have a muscle strain. Sometimes shingles can present as a burning sensation but usually has a band of redness associated with it. Also you could have a irritated skin nerve from pressure or trauma. Tough one to answer but that should be a good start.
