Oftentimes, an individual may present with symptoms of generalized itchiness or the sensation of burning. Irritation at one site of the body can result in mast cells in other parts of the body releasing histamine although they have not been directly stimulated. Dermatographism is a condition limited to the skin. If you experience other symptoms that are concerning, such as, difficulty breathing, seek immediate medical attention. Symptoms can be induced by tight or abrasive clothing, watches, glasses, heat, cold, or anything that causes stress to the skin or the patient. In many cases it is merely a minor annoyance, but in some rare cases symptoms are severe enough to impact a patient's life.
