does anyone else have dermatogaraphia? i heard that there may be a link to fibro. it usually starts in your 20's but can happen from birth as in my case. any treatment suggestions would be welcomed. :wave:

do you get the skin writing? when i was a child it was alot worse and i only had to be touched and it would leave a raised impression of the mark. now, if my skin is rubbed, knocked or scratched, it burns, turns red and then i get raised white wheals.

it can stop me moving joints, particularly my fingers, but also affects my mucous membrames, all of them :oops: , and my throat and my bowel (i can obviously only feel it in my bowel.) oh and it seems to affect my trachea.

it can be difficult if i have to hide away for an hour if i have scratched my face or squeezed a pimple :oops: i will never learn :lol: . passionate kissing makes me look like i'm disfigured. :yikes:

i have just started researching it as i am trying to see if there is a link my numerous health conditions. thanks for reading

very gentle :hugs: adele xx

thanks. i joined a support forum yesterday and want to find out as much as i can. most doctors don't know what it is but it can effect surgery and perhaps child birth. it just gets mistaken for allergic urticaria when infact it is probably autoimmune. i found out it is probably connected to my coeliac. i just want to tie every up with a pretty bow. it doesn't sound serious but it an a big inpact on sufferers' lives. :wave:
