Brief Answer:
Keep a watch.

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
The picture at the moment is not clear diagnostically. Periodic pain with watering shows a nerve stimulation.That could be due to various reasons. Also local infections can also give the same picture and things become clear later on. These two can be combined and one can have viral infection of nerve like herpes, where blisters start after 4days of pain. Again all this just. conjuncture,which gives us guidelines as to what to look for.
Before the picture is clearer,it is advisable to have painkiller twice a day to be symptom free and as the diagnosis clears,specific treatment can be offered.
Hoping for a speedy recovery.
