Help me figure out what this weird burning/raw sensation is...

When I get a fever, I can usually tell because my skin becomes ultra sensitive. Anything that touches it causes it to feel raw and burning.
The closest I can compare it to is that maybe its like what would happen if you got a burn that affected your nerves only, not your actual skin. I figure when its associated with a fever that its just my internal body temperature doing weird things because its overheated.
BUT, sometimes I'll get it on parts of my body when I don't have a fever at all. It will last a few days (right now its on my right thigh, on the front) and then slowly dissipate. It's really bad because even clothing causes it to hurt.
Someone tell me... what is it?
