Touch issues after One UI 4.1

Hey everyone.

Looks like I'm having issues with apps which use "Appear on top" permissions like FB Messenger after the One UI 4.1 update. When I open up a cheat head and then back out of it, the screen doesn't react to the next two touches/swipes/taps. Anywhere I touch/tap/swipe is not reacting except the chat head, if I touch the cheat head it reacts to my touches/taps/swipes. It seems like the screen stays in the "Appear on top" mode even though I'm not using that app in that moment. If I enter some chat by opening up the whole Messenger app and then back out of it completely, I don't have this issue since the app wasn't using the "Appear on top" permissions in that case.
I've also noticed that if I watch a video over YouTube (with that same permission enabled) in fullscreen mode and then exit out of it by clicking the home button, the same thing happens but if I turn of the "Appear on top" permission for the YouTube app the issue stops.

Edit: Looks like turning off "Apper on top" no longer works for Youtube.. 

Edit: I've tried turning on touch sensitivity and it didn't help at all. Also, factory reset would kind of be my last option since I don't have access to my PC for a few days and uploading the large amount of pictures/videos I have on the phone to the cloud would take days with my Internet speed. 

So the things I've tried are: turning on touch sensitivity; clearing cache for both apps I've noticed the issue on; wiping cache partition; reinstalling the apps completely; restarting the phone; turning on/off the permission. 

Any tips on how to fix this?
