Local mast cell: Local tissues release gets exposed to blood produces which is irritating to tissue. Which responds with histamine and swells with itching. Try vit e oil or black current seed oil locally let me know if this helped.

Sensitive skin: Your description sounds like sensitive skin but could be a sign of atopy or allergic reaction. Try using topical skin lotion and anti-inflammatory creme (such as Hydrocortisone 1%). If no improvement, see a dermatologist.
