For me, most of my skin, including my scalp, hurts during a flare. When I am not having a flare, I still cannot stand my arms to be touched, unless it's a really firm rubbing. I can only handle my back being rubbed for about 20 seconds, and then I can't stand it.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. ~ Robert Frost
