Sensitive skin to the touch

It started in my right upper leg. Then I noticed pelvic bone area sensativity. It traveled to my other leg and also affected my back terribly at the end of each day. I have history of back problems and thought it might be that. I used advil that helped with the discomfort of pain but did not help with the sensitivity to touch and clothing. Around the sixth day I noticed the back pain was gone and now it had moved down both legs to my feet and actually made my toenails feel sore and the bottoms of my feet. Also it worked its way up to my back on both sides and now down both outer arms and hands. It feels like a sunburn that has no rash, no heat to it. I have been checked by a dr. and she sees no outside skin irritation and there is no fever. Today we are drawing blood to check for Lymes and Thyroid issues. It seems others have had short periods of time with this issue. Me it has been 9 days now. Any help would be so appreciated.

  • I had a similar problem. I went to my dermatologist and he told me I needed an allergy test because his tests were inconclusive. I got an allergy test and realized I was allergic to many of the plants around where I lived. I would go to your dermatologist first, then possibly an immunologist. If you need a dermatologist you can find one in this health directory: http://www.healthgrades.com/dermatology-directory
