It is strange because there is No RASH, no bruising, no bumps like shingles (which I had at 28), it hurts to wear clothing, to be touched, lay in bed anything. I've read many possible answers.. I have not seen a Dr yet as typically, I do not get answers from them only bills. any suggestions would be welcome.
I see a specialist May 15th and I hope to GOD that he can fix it. I find it very hard to walk or even touch my skin I did find a warm bath helps to get my body all at the same temperature not sure why it feels good but once my body cools down it comes back.
It is really itchy and when I itch it and touch another spot, that spot gets itchy but not to the extent of the original rash. I have very sensitive skin and things like scented soap and deodorant make me break out, but this time I'm not sure what's going on.
My left foot started hurting about 3 days ago, as if i had pulled a muscle in the arch of my foot, and then yesterday my right thigh started hurting, the skin is sensitive to the touch, whenever my pants brush up against it or i touch or bump into anything it hurts, i dont have any discoloration in my thigh, no swelling, no bruising, no rash, but it hurts. When it first started hurting the area that hurt was about the size of an orange and now it covers most of the front part of my thigh.
there is an area on the back of my right thigh where the skin is sensitive to the touch. Its bothersome when materials touch it more than other things. I can feel it when i walk and my jeans rub against it. There is no rash or anything there. What is wrong with me.
old female with multiple medical problems - but- this 1 eludes me.At no particular time of year or any other stimuli to relate this to,I have extremely sensitive no rashes/bumps/bruises/etc.Generally starts around my rib area on both sides-then-progresses to skin on both arms/over hip area.Usually stays tender to light touch for 1-2 weeks-then-leaves as suddenly as it appeared-only to come back again every 2-4 months with same symptoms.
For about 2 weeks now, I've had 2 spots on my body where the skin is very sensitive to the touch. The best way to describe it, is that I almost feels like a sunburn. There is no rash, no redness, or anything else. The skin looks completely normal. It started in my left armpit, shortly after shaving, so I ignored it at first assuming it was razor burn. The area has spread now and covers the full armpit, and works its way into my arm, and around the back to my shoulder blade.
Yesterday I started feeling the sensation in my right hip area as I was sitting at work, by night time it had moved across my front and encompassed both hips. Same sensation, like a sunburn, sensitive to touch. I woke up this morning with the pain still there, but also in my lower back. There is no rash or warmth or redness in the areas. Does anyone know what this may be? I don't seem to have any of the other symptoms the internet lists for Fibromyalgia. Thanks for any input.
I am trying to figure out what we all have in common other than this skin tenderness. There is no outward signs that anything is wrong...no rash, no ANYTHING.
It's now Jul 26, 2008 and still no shingles as to what is causing this sensitive skin on my right upper leg, front and back. But it is very sensitive to the touch. Still no outward appearance of a rash or anything else. My original onset of this was at least 2 weeks ago. Never have had this before. Does anyone this your soap could cause it. Let me know if anyone out there knows.
Thanks for your response. As to your questions: still no itching, no burning, no "hot to the touch". Live alone; only people I've been in close contact with in past 7 days (daughter-in-law, young granddaughters, & sister) don't have a rash. No to sexual contact, no to shaving/waxing/exfoliation. Have dealt with several bouts of yeast skin infections in the past; this is different.

Tests came back clean for any and all STD's. He wanted me to see a dermatologist. Before I made the appointment the rash went away. It did leave minor scaring. I never went to the dermatologist. This week 13 months later the same rash came back. Not as bad as the first time. It was hard enough to go to my regular doctor for this so I am having a real hard time going to a different doctor. What could case this rash that is not an STD?
There is no inflammation and no stinging sensation when i pee. It is a tiny bit sensitive to touch when washing but thats it. I dont think it is Balantitis because there is no swelling or soreness. Aside from seeing my doctor, would you recommend just gentle washing and to stop having sex until it improves? is there any usual time frame for such irritation?
There is no history of an insect bite and no signs of pain or enlarged nodes in the area. The rash just appeared out of no where. I did change detergents, but I do often and I didn't develope the rash anywhere else on my body. I just take birth control pills and have for several years, with no change in the medication.
I've got a patch on the left thigh of about the same size as my palm exactly what you all say, raw to touch, not painful just annoying with no marks on the skin, i do keep my mobile phone in the left leg pocket ALL the time though, so i'm wondering whether that has anything to do with it? I've taken my phone out of there for the last week.
For as long as I can remember my skin would welt up at the slightest scratch or even a touch. I knew it was weird, but I did not think much of it. Now I am starting to wonder more about what is really going on. My skin is really sensitive. If someone grabs my arm, it will tingle and itch and i would feel a welt start to form. When I used to play basketball if I got hit with the ball on my leg or anything it would welt up. Sometimes it would be a big circular welt.
There is no visible lesion or rash (the skin below the glans is maybe vaguely irritated or red, but hard to even say). It started to get better, but has somewhat relapsed, and now has been a total of about 3 weeks since the start of symptoms. He has no general systemic or urethral symptoms like discharge or dysuria. He has not tried any treatment except cleaning it vigorously, which resulted in dry, flaky skin.
Anyway, every once and a while (aprox 1-2 times/month), certain areas on my body will become EXTREMELY sensitive to the touch for about a full day. BUT, there is never any redness, swelling, rash or ANYTHING to indicate any type of injury or reason for the pain. It's just a radiating discomfort, literally skin deep. Sometimes it's my forearm area, sometimes my shoulder blade area. Just varies, for no apparent reason I guess.
The affected skin may itch, feel numb, and be unbearably sensitive to touch. Often the patient experiences a combination of these sensations along with pain. ... The prodrome stage lasts 1 - 5 days before the infection becomes active and the skin rash erupts. Occasionally, the pain can last weeks or even months before the rash erupts. Active Shingles. The rash that marks the active infection follows the same track of inflamed nerves as the prodrome pain.
I've never had to advise patients to quit swimming, no matter how sensitive their skin, so I wouldn't worry about that. Some people get small hives after exposure to hot water or after sweating. I'm guessing that that's what you have. You may also be noticing extra redness on the seborrheic areas, only because water and warmth highlight redness, whatever the cause.
changed my deodorant a few times, the latest one is a natural, no smell for sensitive skin, 2. didn't use deodorant at all for a period of more than 2 months, 3. applied moisturising cream, 4. wash my body with soap free material, None of the above has worked for me yet. I do not live in a dry environment. I go to Gym three times a weeks followed by an immediate body wash, drying and moisturising my skin. I cut the hairs with a razor every month.
The dermatologist also said that as I am suffering from other allergies like hayfever and dustmites I am also more sensitive to general insect bites like mosquitos etc. this also means my skin in general is more sensitive and therefor the more severe case of bruising and rash. Am seeing the dermatologist again in 2 weeks and will post further update if I find out more.
Hello! Red sunburn like rashes can be caused due to several reasons. Based on the description shared by you it is possible that it is a fungal rash .It is commonly caused by fungal infections such as jock itch, ringworm, and yeast infection. Other causes of sunburn like rash are scabies, toxic shock syndrome, eczema etc.These are only possibilities. An external examination is very important for correct diagnosis. Do seek the opinion of a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and best wishes!
It is literally the whole spine is extreamly painful to touch. Nobody seems to know what it is or what to do to treat it. I would love to know what any of you have found out. I'm 33 now and I just need answers.
tender,sore,painful skin-very sensitive to touch or when clothing rubs or even lays against my skin-very painful-sometimes unbearable...no visible symptoms like a rash,blotches,swelling-nothing...it is from my left side-mid area of stomach around to mid back(rib cage area)this has been going on for 2 wks...i'm male & 53 yrs old...
However, on Monday I got up and under my arm the skin felt as if there was a rash on it (liken it to a rash from rough clothing against your skin) but there is nothing there! As the day progressed the pain progressed and by the time I went to bed last night the pain had grown to include the whole underarm area and also my shoulder blade area on my back. It felt as though the skin was on fire and yet there was no redness or anything.
The reason I posted this in the STD forum was because it affected the genital area and I thought it was a STD, possibly excited because of the medicine I was taken (reaction or the bacteria fighting back) I've taken some pictures as the skin has almost completely peeled off and is no longer sensitive to touch. Any ideas on next steps? Should I book an appointment with a specialist to see if they have a way to detect an allergic reaction to cipro? Thank you for the response to my query.
