Recently my husband 's skin has become quite sensitive. He winces sometimes when I shave him even though I am applying no more pressure than usual and even if I apply less pressure. Also the carers in the respite unit where he has spent the last few days said he cringed a bit when they were showering him, as if his skin hurt (the water wasn't too hot) and one morning he refused to have a shower and just wanted a damp cloth. Any advice? I understand that with neurological conditions the skin can become very sensitive but wondered if we can overcome the problem?
