Not thin skin, but sensitive skin. I have sensitive skin, and it’s been that way all my life.
As a child — My bug bites always swelled up. Brushing a weed in the field gave me large itchy bumps while everyone else was itchy without bumps. Or not itchy at all. My mom dearly wanted baby me to love Mr. Bubble in the bathtub, but I was allergic to it. Avon, for the most part, had to stay away from me.
For the majority of my upperclassman years during high school, I was using lanolin and bacitracin to heal a patch of skin. It never healed until the family doctor revealed that I was allergic to both lanolin and bacitracin.
As an adult, I had a patch test on my back. The lanolin and bacitracin marks were visible for at least a year afterward. I also have a sensitivity to propylene glycol, which is used in almost everything. I’m currently fighting the largest skin battle ever…because of Tide H.E. powder. But I quit using Tide in October.
Are you allergic to anything?
