Abstract A considerable number of people complain about enhanced skin sensitivity. The aim of this study was to investigate the characteristics of subjective statements and objective measurable parameters in subjects with self-estimated enhanced skin susceptibility. Four-hundred-and-twenty volunteers completed a questionnaire form with a self-estimation of skin susceptibility, possible triggering factors and other skin problems. In addition, basal values of transepidermal water loss, cutaneous blood flow and skin hydration were measured. One-hundred and fifty-two volunteers were also patch-tested with sodium lauryl sulphate 0.5\% on the forearm and evaluated by bioengineering methods. We found no correlation between self-estimated skin susceptibility and bioengineering values, neither basal nor after sodium lauryl sulphate testing. These findings, along with interpretation of the questionnaire form, suggest that self-estimated enhanced skin susceptibility is a subjective problem mostly reported by women and of all ages.
