This is a common problem. Age and steroid use can make your skin paper thin. Taking zinc, vit c and extra protein will help.

Are you on any kind of antibiotic or anti-inflammatory treatment? It sounds like a possible adverse drug reaction, maybe from steroid or sulfa drug treatment. This is a guess. There are other potential causes unrelated to drug therapy.
