Heartburn Zyrtec and Dermographism
I have been recently diagnosed with this skin condition called dermographism. I was put on the steroid prednisone for six days and told to take Zyrtec until the new year. Things have improved but anytime that I think I can stop taking the Zyrtec antihistamine medication, small areas of dermographism will flare up on my skin. I have had stomach irritation/heartburn since the beginning and fortunately Zyrtec helps with that problem too. My concern is why the stomach issue? I don't see that as a symptom for dermographism listed anywhere in the literature. I did tell my doctor about it. I am just worried that this may be a sign of a more serious health problem.
