Is this a known effect?Very much so, especially for flu. It is similar to heightened sensitivity to sound and light, especially when feverish.
Is there a known (or likely) mechanism?Apparently staying hydrated is a good way to limit it. Ibuprofen helps reduce inflamatory related symptoms, including the skin sensitivity. I found that acetaminophen does a nice job on headaches and fever, but not so helpful with the inflamation.
Is there anything I can do to limit it while recovering?
Benefit of covid: Our altered social practices have seemingly prevented about two years of all the common stuff I/we usually contract each year. Sorry this hasn't been entirely true for you.
