Itchy when force are applied on my skin

Hi doc…
Im a lady in my late 20’s. I have allergy to latex and chlorine. Lately I realized that my body become so itchy when a force is applied to it. For example, my arm become so itchy with burning sensation when my husband hold it too hard. The itchiness can last for hours. I thought it just my husband, so I tried with other ppl and other part of my body like legs and hands too. The outcome was same. The harder they hold me, the more intense the burning sensation & the itchiness. Should I worry bout it?
