Re: Dermatographism question
Hi Cheer Angel, just out of curiosity, what was the infection your mom had? How has she improved since the infection was taken care of?
billybob0....I have a friend who has the same problem. She has some food allergies, but will admit that stress has exacerbated the problem. The itching is definitely the most uncomfortable. She is on Singulair for her allergies (lung/cough related), and the allergist prescribed hydroxyzine HCL for her to take daily. I think it has to be taken at night/evening because she really feels "out of it" the next morning if taken too late.
When she forgets to take it for one night she's fine, but two nights...she definitely starts itching.
Her dermagraphism is still there, tho. But since she's not itching and scratching as much, it's not as evident.
Hope you get to the bottom of it.
It's all a matter of perspective!
