    Hi all. Does anyone have skin that is super sensitive? If I have an itch and scratch myself, my skin starts to feel prickly and painful. I also get this wherever there is pressure on my skin (socks, a firm bed, sleeves that are too tight, etc.).

    the sheets hurt me at times. My husband thinks I exaggerate...I don't!

    I also have very sensitive skin, I complained about this years ago and was sent to an infectious disease doc which as usual turned up nothing. It use to only happen occasionally but now it hurts everyday. Another pain I just live with.

    Take care, you are not alone.

    Yes, at times even a sheet is too much, no matter how soft or hold hold, it can feel like 5 lbs on my skin.

    Other times a layer is so itchy I cannot stand it.

    Ruffles & lace are especially baaaaddd!

    Best thoughts to all!
