Dermagraphic so what: Dermagraphia, write on the skin, is a benign, annoying condition where cells in the skin, mast cells readily release histamine causing localized redness, swelling, and itch. These are usually longitudinal due to scratching or rubbing the skin. It can be associated with hives but not always. It can be transient or long lasting. Etiology is usually not identified. Antihistamines can lessen symptom.
