I have a burning sensation on my right temple, it started as a little bump ( like a mosquito bite type) and now disappear and it feels like burning non-stop, but only in that area, what could it be?

considering that she problems has been short-term, it appears unlikely that you had any viral infection like shingles. That would usually lasts longer than 2 days. It would not disappear. It could have been as sample bug bite. Consider applying cortisone Cream and ice the area.
Without the benefit of a Physical Exam or a photo of the bump when it was there, it seems that you only complain of severe, local pain that keeps you up the entire night. My differential diagnosis would include otitis media, optic or trigeminal nerve pain, temporal arteritis, insect bite or Lyme's Disease. Off to a Dermatologist you would go; if nothing found, off to a Pain Clinic for you. Would not want you writhing in pain much longer. Your personality could easily change and depression, irritability, insomnia, and even suicide ideation are possible if this is laughed off, misdiagnosed, given a prolonged diagnosis, or otherwise misdiagnised. I would not want you to turn into a Chronic Illness/Pain patient.
It could be a tiny acne lesion or an early herpetic lesion. If blisters develop or it worsens see a physician. In the meantime, treat as acne with a benzoyl peroxide gel twice daily-
