Synopsis

Dermographism is an abnormal wheal and flare reaction in the skin induced by pressure, which develops over minutes and is usually pruritic. In dermographism, inadvertent stroking or rubbing of the skin will result in corresponding linear wheals. The cause of dermographism is unknown, but clinically, it appears similar to urticaria and is seen more frequently in patients with urticaria and atopic dermatitis.
