Re: Is this shingles?

I would more suspect a possible sinus infection if the pain and heat is under the cheekbone. Sinus infections can produce pain and pressure behind the eye or in the teeth on the affected side. If it is shingles, you will break out in a blistery rash on that side of face in 2-3 days. Trigeminal neuralgia is a third possibility.
