I am not able to live a normal life , took a no of tests also , but seems no symptoms of allergy. I am having this allergy from last 10 years almost.Please help me , i want to be normal .
It can be due to dermatographism. Dermatographism can be caused by stress, tight or abrasive clothing, watches, glasses, energetic kissing, heat, cold, or anything that causes stress to the skin. In many cases it is merely a minor annoyance, but in some rare cases symptoms are severe enough to impact a patient's life.
It can be treated by antihistamines or cromoglicate and sometimes steroids, as they prevent the histamine from causing the reaction. As the underlying cause of dermographism is not known, it can last for many years without relief.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Thanks Dr. for the reply and suggestion. i may explain more on my allergy. IT started around 15 years back . In start days i have itching on my legs belows knees only . I took some medician from doctor and some lotion also (didnot remember now) and after sometime start feel fine , but it was just a week relief and started again. then it start increasing in all body and also the sources got increased. In start it was just water then it increased to air , pressure (like if someone hit me) then heat (now a days even when i touch my legs with my legs only , i feel itchy) . my skin have red dots all over .I got treatment from a no of dermatologist in india including apollo - delhi , fortis - noida .But noone is able to understand it properly asks for some tests , and nothing came in tests also. I stopped eating spices (chilly, all indian masalas) to avaod this .But your reply bring a hope for me and i check on internet for "dermatographism" and seems like that but may be at very high stage. I am suffering from last 15 years from this .I want to know if this can be treated and i can also wear shorts again in my life.

It is mainly on legs but lesser on hands and back. above neck all is normal. my skin is very dry having dandruff all over body , a lot of hairs on legs and hands .
Unfortunately there is no cure for dermatographism but symptoms can be treated by antihistamines which prevents the histamine from causing the reaction and these may need to be given as a combination of H1 antagonists, or possibly with an H2-receptor antagonist such as cimetidine.
Hi Doc, This can't be cured but symptons can be treated ... i didn't get it actually.Also i want to know if there is side effects of these tablets as i took some in pasts , i feel like my brain stopped working . Is this illness got any age or can be cured by itself with time as i am waiting from last 15 years but it is going on increasing only.
Also , i checked the H1 and H2 receptor on net , i am having gastric problem also , i feel my stomac like burning from inside after any spicy food. if it is not possible to sure it , i want to have cure from itching , i donot care if i have red dots on my body or anything .
