sensitive skin
does your skin get sensitive when you're sick? my bf doesn't and i am having hard time explaining to him how touch feels like to me.
(he is respectful of my wishes of him not touching me too much, and asks what's okay what isn't)
but i don't know how to explain it, like shock waves??? idk what even causes this kind of sensitive skin

Do you mean in terms of skincare or more ala overstimulation?

oh overstimulation!
like i need to wear the softest of fabrics when i am sick
omg yes when i have a fever the slightest touch feels like it sends shock waves through my whole body, like even wearing clothes hurt
Yes! My back gets sensitive when someone touches it when I'm sick and it feels weird (doesn't like hurt, but kind of?)

some ppl tell me their hair also hurts like the roots, which for me it doesn't but oh my does my skin hurt
Here too, for me it's worst around my ribs and also my hair/scalp! Commenting because I am curious what causes this

exactly, ribs and back are the worst alongside scalp... i feel like there is some detective work to be done here
it's worse the lower the fever is but never goes fully away while you're sick
For me its like a "tell" that I have a fever. If I'm sick without a fever I don't really get it, although I have experienced it in periods where I have been super stressed / lacking sleep as well

Edit: And for me at least it's like actual pain; at least by the ribs they almost feel bruised. I sometimes explain it to my partner that it feels like I have been beaten up in my sleep hehe
