Hello and welcome--I'm Dr Chip
Interesting that you mentioned the trigeminal nerve--was that because of the distribution of the pain?
OK This is tic douloureaux or trigeminal neuralgia
Not an infection and usually it will resolve in time but ask your doctor for a prescription of either Neurontin or Tegretol to treat it for now
Please let me know if you need any more information
