Is it okay to get laser hair removal if you have dermographism or chronic urticaria problems?

In brief: Perhaps

It should be O.K.
But depends on the severity of the urticaria. Might try premedicating with antihistamines to avoid a severe reaction. Maybe try a small spot or patch and wait to see what type of reaction you get. Icing and use of Hydrocortisone afterwards might help also.
