    Is this in a narrow, horizontal band? Did you ever have chicken pox? This sounds like Shingles. I know there things a doc can do in the first few days to lessen the attack, but I don't know what is available for later in the outbreak.

    I do know that this is a neurological condition that can become quite serious. SEE YOUR DOCTOR ASAP. I subbed fro a teacher who was out for a whole semester with shingles. She finally had to retire early. SEE YOUR DOCTOR.
