Well, I first started noticing this problem around the age of perhaps 15 and I could only assume that stress may be the likely cause. To my knowledge, I don't have any allergies and I have had protective shots against harmful infections and infestations.
I have learned that this usually occurs to people in their twenties and I'm just curious if that is for better or for worse? Also, how long is this problem likely going to stick around?
It is too hard to tell you how long it will last. It depends on the individual person. For some, it lasts only a few months. For others, it is a lifetime and for others still it may come and go over the years. More information is at the dermatographism page.
I have had this skin condition for 5 months now. It has gone down a bit, but will it ever completely go?
For some people it has, for others the symptoms are more mild, and for others it lasts many years. Some people do not experience symptoms for a long time and then they reappear. It really depends on the individual person. There is no cure. For more information visit: dermatographism.
