dermagraphism

My son is 10 years old and went to an allergy specialist today. About 6 times in the past 2 years he has woken up with very swollen lips, he also gets frequent bleeds, and he is allergic to dust. He has had welts spread to different parts of his body, and his hands get bumps which he itches and I use hydrocortizone for that. I don't know whether this is dermagraphism or angioedema? I really don't want to have to give him loratadine every day for the rest of his life, but I want to know what more I could do to help him and understand why this is happening to him. Can anyone help us?
