I went to a dermatologist last week, and she told me that I have dermographism. It started last month. How long does it take to go away? I have little bumps in my stomach such as hives, just like a pimple. I have a doubt, can hives pop like a little simple bump or only occur in clusters? I just wanted to know some information about the condition.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Dermographism (dermatographism) is an exaggerated urticarial response which is also called skin writing. It is usually seen in young adults with a fair complexion and it disappears in 6-8 hours.
It usually gets off course as the age progresses and it is just of a cosmetic concern. Usually, dermographism does not give any symptoms and usually has a trigger like stick injury, pressure, etc.
Complete blood count with differential count and IgE.Differential diagnosis:
1. Acute urticaria.
1. Antihistaminics like Fexofenadine, Levocetirizine.
2. A moisturizer can be applied.
3. If it does not come down, then you can take a week of low dose steroid like Prednisolone 5 mg in the morning before food.
