Hello! As I said, I’m sending to You my photo!
I had dermatographia already when I was like 7 years old – now I’m 15
and I still have it. First time I didn’t know what it is, what it’s
called and if there is maybe something wrong with me? But then i found
You, and Your beautiful photos. You showed me with them, that
dermatograpia it’s something very special! Now, when I have occasion I
will just say thank You! Some people are sad about having
dermatographia but not me. I’m happy for it because it’s like art on
my own skin! I’m pretty sure I’d be like other people if I didn’t
found your blog!
Thank you again, Patrycja/somnambulizm!
P.S. If there are any mistakes – sorry! I’m not that good in English.
Hi I’m Aily from the Philippines. I only found out I had this skin allergy after graduating from college. Although I’d seen it occurring on my younger brother for years, and then my mom told us she also had it when she was younger but it disappeared a few years later, now I had it confirmed that it may have been genetic. Thankfully it’s not worse and I’ve asked my dermatologist about it but she says there’s still no cure and its nothing contagious so I don’t need to worry. Hopefully this will go away just like what happened to my Mom.
Hello my name is Gabrielle. I’ve found out that I am one of the few people that have dermatographia. This skin condition Is amazing. When ever I get bored I just draw on myself, being a bored artist in pre-algebra what else do you expect me to do? My friends in middle school all mess with it too all the oooo’s and awes and maybe a few eewwww’s but hey what can you do? All I have to say is people with dermatographia our skin is cooler than theirs.
Thank you for making what we have an art-form & giving me a way to explain to people it’s perfectly normal and beautiful. I have lived with it for years trying to hide it and now I can say it’s my art.
Hello other dermatographics,
I’m a teenager living in Sydney, Australia and I’ve had hives for almost 4 years now. At school, I easily get imprints on my forearm after resting it on tables and they always get mistaken as self harm marks.
After seeing everyone else share their art on this page, I was inspired to as well! My friends drew on my arm at school today and my dermatographia attracted a lot of attention, haha! Everyone wanted to draw on me and some people even decided to colour some of the patterns in.
With everyone crowding around me, people were saying things like, “I wish I had a cool skin condition like you!”
All these “ideas” made me realise how I could take advantage
Of my hives!
thank you so much…although you don’t know who am I.
I am a girl who lives in Hong Kong.
Today,My doctor diagnosed that I have dermatographism.
I didn’t understand what happened with my body since Aug.
Your skin art makes me have more positive thinking.
I think I can learn how to face my paper skin like you!!!
Hello! My name is Salagean Sergiu, and I want to tell you that I have the same problem as you! Since I was young, when I scratched my skin, that area became red and was inflated for no longer than one hour. I have been to many doctors, and no one knew what the problem was. I’m happy to see that I’m not the only one with this problem. I’m happy to meet you!
