Dermographism, Rashes and Hives at 14-Years-Old
by Madison Rose-Marie Hughes
During the summer I was hanging out with my best friend and I noticed that my arm was starting to get itchy so I just started to scratch it. When I looked down there were rashes all over where I had been scratching. I showed my mom and she thought that maybe it was just allergies, but then I started getting the hives/rashes out of nowhere about 7-10 times a day all over my body and my mom had no clue what was going on.
Finally about 3 months later my mom took me to the doctor and he did a test on me and came to the conclusion that I had dermographism. He put me on anti-histamines and I have been on them for a few days now and my rashes/hives have not been as bad but I am still getting them occasionally.
I have now been suffereing from this for 3 and 1/2 months and I already know that I am not going to like this at all.
