Natural Remedies and Cures for Dermatographism

by Anonymous

Do you know of any natural remedies to treat Dermographism?

Usually the best and most effective treatment for dermatographism is the use of antihistamines. More than one type is used and doses are generally higher than what is available over-the-counter. However, many individuals do not like being on antihistamines for a long period of time and therefore seek natural remedies or cures for dermatographism.

This website contains many stories from readers that have tried natural remedies or cures for dermatographism. For example, noni juice has been tried with apparently some success. There are also natural antihistamines that can be tried.

My advice is to consult with a physician first and follow the usual treatment of antihistamines that he/she will likely prescribe. If this is not working after a while, then alternative treatments might be a better option. Many suffers of dermatographism do find good relief with the right prescription antihistamines and in the correct dosage. However, every sufferer of this skin condition is different and so it hard to predict what your results will be.

simple fix, works for me
by: Ann

I (like many suffering from this disorder) have struggled for years with attempts to treat the symptoms. Antihistamines do not provide consistent help. The only thing I've found that works quickly, consistently and completely, is cold or wet-cold. A cold wet washcloth being the quickest and best way to get rid of it. Don't rub it over the rash or it will get worse (obviously) but get it as cold as you can stand it, then put it over the itching and apply gentle pressure until the itch sensation eases a bit. Release pressure and move it slightly, reapply pressure. Continue as needed until the itch sensation dies down. The cold/wet will provide instant relief, as well as instant die-down of the immune-response. It may still take a bit for the red/bumps to go away but if you stay calm, the response should stay gone. I have noticed if I'm panicking or allow myself to panic thinking it will never stop, it makes it harder for the response to die down, so I'm sure that the stress factor has a lot to do with this. I just try to breathe calmly, apply the cold pressure (reboot with cold water as needed if the cloth warms up) and trust that the response WILL die down if I allow it.
