Thanks for writing to us.
Your description provided does not help to reach to a particular diagnosis. However there seem to be two possibilities in your case. One is that of cellulitis - a bacterial infection and another one is herpes zoster- viral infection. Both these conditions are severe and need an immediate attention. I would advise that you visit your health care provider to diagnose the disease for proper management.
Take care
