hi there,
the description u are giving suggests a pre herpetic pain of herpes zoster.this is the pain which arises in a segmental fashion before onset of vesicles on an erythematous base . this is a viral infeection caused by varicella zoster virus. i would suggest you to show it to a dermatologist in case any vesicles are seen in the area.possible treatment would include an NSAID or amytryptiline or gabapentin.
