Psychiatrist 's  Response
you are most likley suffering from zoster( a condition due to Herpes virus). It is self limiting disorder. But you need to be investigated for what made the dormant virus reactivate, like loss of immunity. Alse there are pain relievers specially for this herpetic neuralgia. consult a physician or dermatologist
