I have dermographia and am suffering w itch n swelling even my vagina swells when having sex n makes it hurt I was told sarna lotion but nope help?

Evaluation is key: You have a fairly uncommon condition given the location of the problem. I would suggest seeing a specialist in allergy/patch testing. You may need to be on antihistamines and leukotriene inhibitors (singulair), you may also need a topical steroid. I do not think that sarna is going to be the answer to all these issues. See a specialist soon! ...Read more
