    Hello Lesley:

    My name is Shelly and I am a nurse in the USA.  I have Hashimoto's thyroid disease.

    I think you mean Symtomatic Dermographism.  It has to do with your nervous system and you itch a lot and form blisters.

    You will need to be under a Dermatologist and perhaps a Neurologists care for this.  You may want to post this under Dermatology forum.

    I hope you get well,

    Shelly

      Hello Lesley:

      It sure is rare, I think. I heard it can sometimes run a course for a while and then go away.

      I know what you mean it is welts/blisters and is all over and you can't be touched.

      Steriods can bring it down. I feel for you. I wonder if it is a family trait or somehow runs in families?  Do you have thyroid disease? They think it can be maybe related to it.

      Get well,

      Shelly

      Hello Lesley:

      Have your doctor look for autoimmune problems like Lupus and Hashimoto's Thyroid disease.

      It can be related to autoimmune.  Ask the doctor to do a TPOA (antibodies test for thyroid) and  ESR which means Erthyrocyte Sedimentation Rate for inflammation markers in the body.  Have a Lupus test done also.

      Since you have Fibromyalgia and Osetoarthritis and Diabetes, you have some conditions that may make your skin do this. The steriods should calm it down and make sure you have some food when you take them.

      Keep me posted on how you do,

      Shelly
