dark patches on both sides can be due to various reasons.
it could be hyperpigmentation, or sun burn, or an allergic reaction to jewellery or an infection.
since it is associated with pain it looks more like infection,
i would advise you to consult a dermatologist in this regard.
take care and wish you a speedy recovery
