Hello, I’m Feli..rnDoc want to ask me in the past few years I’ve had sensitive skin…rnIf I pinch or bite my skin, my skin quickly becomes like a mosquito bite.. But that’s only for a short time. about 5-10 minutes..rnGuess what’s the cause and how to deal with it..
Bump reactions (protrusion of the skin area with redness) such as mosquito bites on trauma such as being scratched by sharp objects, biting, small sharp pinches (using nails) with the same shape as the trauma can arise as an allergic reaction to the skin. In the medical world known a medical condition that is dermography.
Dermographism is an urticaria (hist) condition that occurs minutes to hours after blunt trauma to the skin.

This condition illustrates that a person has a talent for allergies or a tendency to allergies that is quite high.
This condition occurs on moderate to strong skin pressure and generally a bumpy reaction will occur like the form of trauma given. This is due to the presence of mast cells (allergy-causing cells) in the skin that break easily due to the pressure. When mast cells rupture, there will be excessive production of histamine (the cells that cause itching) on the skin, causing a reaction of redness, bumps and itching as an example.
Treatment for this condition is generally only to prevent excessive pressure on the skin so that the mast cells do not burst. If it turns out that allergic conditions have arisen then giving antihistamines can help reduce itching. Avoid scratching because scratching will make the condition worse. Generally if the reaction is not too severe this condition will subside after some time.
Hope it clarifies.
