Thanks for writing in.
What you could be suffering from is possibly an allergic reaction or a an infection ( which could be bacterial or viral). It can also be herpes zoster , if you suffered from chicken pox in the past. You can take tablet cetrizine 10 mg once a day for 3-4 days for the itching. You can also apply calamine lotion on the affected area. The pain is suggestive of an infection, which would require a course of antibiotics or anti-virals depending on the identified cause. please see a dermatologist for the same.
Hope this helps.
