Why the skin is sensitive to touch? Acupuncture reduces pain

Allodynia is a condition in which someone experiences pain in the skin from non-painful stimuli, such as a light touch to the skin. Allodynia can be a symptom of different conditions, or it can occur on its own.

The main symptom of allodynia is pain from non-painful stimuli.

Some people with allodynia may experience severe pain with gentle pressure. Symptoms can vary from mild to severe. Some people may feel a burning sensation while others feel an ache or squeezing pain. Other symptoms accompanied can be depression, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, not concentrating etc.

Some underlying conditions can cause allodynia. It’s most commonly linked to fibromyalgia and migraine headaches. Postherpetic neuralgia or peripheral neuropathy can also cause it.

The exact cause of allodynia is not known.

Allodynia may occur due to increased responsiveness or malfunction of sensory nerves and receptors.

Acupuncture can help reduce pain.
