Sounds like it is post herpatic neuralgis from the shingles. The shingles virus can effect the nerves and cause them to signal pain even though the rash has cleared. In some people this can go on for years. I hope this will not be so in your case. It can be treated with drugs like Lyrica and gabapentin or Neurontin. Talk to your healthcare professional for advice.
