Dermographia!

Posted by Marcus [3244.6233] on December 01, 2008 at 16:40:06:

Hi all. Well, I've got another thing to add to my recently diagnosed
hyperthyroid... dermographia (sometimes called dermatographia).
This is where any slight scratch on my skin causes raised red welts. I
can draw pictures and write words without much effort!

I did get an inflammation blood test (can't remember what its called,
but it's where they put your blood in a long thin tube and see how
much it settles - something to do with proteins) which surprisingly
didn't show too much inflammation.

This is clearly another example of me needing to do the 3LS, and I
have started. My question is, is there anything (herbs or food or
whatever) that I can take, or should avoid to help me along with this
kind of allergic reaction?

Hi, Marcus.

Dermatographia is a classic result of dysautonomia and is not related to allergy. It is an over-reaction to minor trauma: such as running your fingernail across your skin.

I know of nothing other than the 3LS to resolve this and that will take about a year. I guess you should be thankful that your bodymind has selected this method of sending you a message, rather than so many other more serious messages it could send you!

Let us know how you do.

Walt

I know! My wife and I have had a bunch of these kinds of more
annoying than serious conditions over the last year or so, and I keep
saying that at least we are getting mild prompting from our bodies
rather than nothing then something nasty!

Thanks again.
