Dermatographia Urticaria is a rare condition in which the skin reacts to minor pressure and injuries, where even light scratches become raised welts. The immune system of the affected individual shows signs of extreme hypersensitivity, which may also explain why individuas who suffer from the disorder rarely ever fall ill. The welts can last from 30 minutes to over an hour. The initial cause of the disorder is unknown, and there is no permanent cure in existence.
This is my fourth year with the disorder.
