Thanks for the query.

Is the bump red in color? And is your pain and swelling restricted only to the left side ? How about the headache? Is that too on only one side?

If yes, then you may be developing Herpes Zoster. See a dermatologist as soon as possible.

If the answer to the above questions is NO, then please send your pics to YYYY@YYYY saying Attn: Dr Gaurang.
