Dermographism and its Homeopathy Treatment

Cure DERMOGRAPHISM with homeopathy remedies. Detail information about the BEST homeopathic remedies for dermographism.

Dear Sir, I suffer from rashes which the doctor says are dermographism. They come and go and also on scratching any part, I develop long red raised lines on skin. Sir is there any homeopathic treatment or cure for dermographism in homeopathy?

Asked by Amit

Dear Amit,



The symptoms that you have written are that of dermographism. It often occours in people who have urticaria, but can happen without it also. The term dermographism literally means writing on the skin. Firm stroking of the skin produces an initial red line, followed with broadening erythema (redness of skin) and the formation of a linear wheal (raised skin / wheal). It usually gets aggravated by touch, strong pressure, warm bath, warm weather, stress and some drugs. In most cases the wheals caused due to dermographism fade away in a few hours.

However, you will need treatment for the underlying hypersensitivity. In homeopathy, symptoms are important, but the cause of a disease, past medical history, family history and even your temprament is atken into account to select a homeopathy remedy.

The repertorial  rubrics that we can consider as a starting point to select a homeopathy remedy are

Skin: Stripes, streaks (39)

Skin: Redness, scratching after (52)

Skin: Eruptions, scratching after (166)

Skin: Urticaria, scratching agg (59)

The most common homeopathy remedies for dermographism are: Rhus-tox, Dulcamara, Graphites, Sulphur, Calcarea carb, Merc sol, Arsenic alb, Hepar sulph, Lachesis, Apis, Oleander, Petroleum, Causticum, Staphysagria, Zincum etc.

You will need to consult a homeopath in person to find out which homeopathy remedy may work best in your cases. It could be one of these or even something else depending upon your individual symptoms.

I also recommend that you get a complete allergy profile (blood test) done to identify the possible allergens. Sometimes an allergen is avoidable.

I wish you health and quick recovery from your urticaria and dermographism.
