Skin Sensitivity

Skin Sensitivity

My skin is sensitive to the touch. It literally hurts to have my skin touched. Any advice? It's hard to deal with.

Merlyn is correct that unfortunately it is a symptom of this disease. Sometimes you have to educate others about your illness and let them know that you are sensitive to touch. Soaking in a Epson Salt bath helps to relieve muscle tension, pain and inflammation.

I feel for you and would suggest you try to do something stress relieving because you know fibromyalgia reacts to all that

Tell people not to touch you lol, no for real I have that also. I don't like anyone to touch me, I've never had a massage and don't want one. I've tried every message chair at brookstone and they all hurt me so bad. Don't poke me either it hurts.my daughter has the same issue and it worries me. I unfortunately don't know any long term thing to do. Just warm baths I just wanted let you know I have the same problem so if I find a answer I'll let you know and let me know if do too. 😊
