Dermatographic Urticaria Treatment

Dermatographic urticaria treatment is an  important  consideration for the people suffering from this weird skin disease. Following, are some simple steps to take when undergoing dermatographic urticaria treatment:


  •  Try to find the causes and  triggers, and avoid them as much as possible.

  • The most commonly drug used is antihistamines, which can provide relief, as it prevents outbreaks  by countering the histamine effect.

  • Cromoglycate is also used to stop histamine release, but it is not very useful when dealing with chronic urticaria.

  • Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture treatments are also useful to many patients.

  • Certain soaps, which are biodegradable or hypoallergenic can be used to reduce itching.

  • You should consult a doctor if the symptoms persist.

Dermatographic Urticaria

Dermatographic urticaria or dermographism is characterized by eruptions and inflammations on the skin when an external offending stimulus comes in contact with the skin. Human skin contains certain cells called mast cells, which protect it against pathogens. The membranes surrounding these cells are weak for some people. In such cases, when the skin is rubbed or scratched, it will release a substance called histamine, which results in the damage of these membranes that causes rashes and swelling of the skin.

In most cases, the actual cause for dermatographic urticaria is unidentified. However, the most commonly believed causes include stress and exposure to extreme heat or cold. Several things that can trigger its occurrence include kissing, tight clothing, watches, jewelry, glasses, and anything that causes pressure or stress to the skin. Even when the skin gets slapped, scratched, or rubbed, eruptions may occur.

Dermatographic urticaria is not a contagious disease and it does not spread from one person to another. In most cases, the eruptions will disappear within a short time after the outbreak; therefore, many people do not need treatment for this. However, some patients may experience it for the duration of their lives. Though in most cases, it is not life threatening, there are some cases that may be severe enough to become life threatening. Therefore,  proper treatment is necessary.
