Leng, \"dangerously\" in Malay is \"merbahaya\" or \"berbahaya.\" I don\'t think it would be the best word to use.
Some substitutes for \"merbahaya\" and \"berbahaya\" may be:


As for \"sensitive,\" there are several words for this too. Some suggestions:

\"mudah tersinggung\"
\"lekas merasa\"
\"mudah merasa\"
\"halus perasaan\"
\"rapuh hati\"

So, you might describe yourself
\"saya seorang yang terlampau sensitif\", or \"saya seorang yang amat mudah merasa apabila dikritik.\"
I guess it depends on which form you like best.

Hope this helps.

Saya ini tersangat sensitif orangnya.

or you can also say, "Saya ini begitu sensitif orangnya." or "Saya ini terlalu sensitif orangnya."

I have translated the whole sentence for it should sound in Malay, to describe that you are a dangerously sensitive person. I think you dont have to mention the word "merbahaya" (dangerous) in Malay. Terlalu, tersangat or begitu sensitif already describe that you are so/extremely sensitive.

ref. :
1.sensitive => sensitif (oxford, times eng-mal)
2.dangerous => berbahaya (times)
3.dangerously => ...dengan cara yang merbahaya (oxford) dangerously ill => sakit tenat, begitu sakit
