Skin concern : About once a month, a specific area of my skin becomes ultra sensitive (feeling like a burn when touched, even very lightly), and it lasts for about a day at a time. It's like if the pain receptors were all turned on. Usually it is an area that is 3-4 inches in diameter, and it can be sometimes on my upper arm, on my thigh, or on my hip. It can be on the right or left side of the body. There is absolutely no visual signs at all -no rash, no bumps, no redness, nothing at all.
I thought it could be allergies, but antihistamine didn't change anything.
I do not have any other skin-related problems besides a bit of psoriasis on my legs.
