Dermatologist 's  Response
If there is no history of trauma, it may be a prodrome of Herpes zoster.
Herpes zoster almost always maintains unilaterality. Within next few days skin eruptions may come up.
The best thing you can do at this moment is to start oral analgesics and consult a dermatologist.
