If you are describing an apparently isolated loss of sensation (light
touch? other modalities?) there is a fairly large differential diagnosis
including central processes like MS and peripheral ones like neuropathies.
 I experienced progressive numbness about a year ago (first noticing a
numb patch on my neck while shaving) which turned out to be an isolated
small-fiber neuropathy, presumedly post-viral.

My advice..see a neurologist.
