Hypersensitive disorder is also known as hypersensitivity and is a disorder which relates to having an extreme sensitivity to the stimulation of any of the five senses which include touch, sight, hearing, taste, and smell.

Hypersensitivity can have a large impact on both the emotional and behavioral responses of children and adults alike.

The symptoms of hypersensitivity personality include.

Become easily overwhelmed by strong sensory input (e.g., bright lights and strong smells)
Notice subtle changes in your environment.
Feel other people's moods.
Are sensitive to pain.
Need alone time to recharge after a busy day.
Find yourself daydreaming often and have a vivid imagination.

If you're a highly sensitive person, you have a heightened awareness of the stimuli around you, which can be good or bad.

Hypersensitive people tend to be bothered by violence and can easily be overwhelmed, which leads them to avoid certain situations.

Highly sensitive people can also be very creative and have a deep level of empathy.

Hypersensitivity isn't a mental health disorder; rather, it is defined, like other aspects of personality, as a trait that exists in each person to varying degrees.

Despite some drawbacks associated with high sensitivity, evidence suggests it may also offer adaptive advantages.

Hypersensitivity, also known as being a “highly sensitive person” (HSP), is not actually a disorder.

Instead hypersensitivity is an attribute common in people with ADHD.

Hypersensitivity tends to decrease over time.

Treat acute type I hypersensitivity reactions supportively with antihistamines for pruritus, NSAIDs for arthralgias, corticosteroids for severe reactions (eg, exfoliative dermatitis, bronchospasm), and epinephrine for anaphylaxis.
