I've been the butt of too many vampire jokes lol

I'd rather not associate with those people who worship vampires, anyway. They all seem to be a few cards short of a full deck.

I have dermatographic urticaria (12)... It varies in intensity from a minor annoyance to an extreme "wtf I can't sleep like this" annoyance. Resisting the urge to scratch is hard and doing so would only make it worse. When it gets to the point where I can't take it anymore I have a dose of diphenhydramine.

Yeah I could draw on myself with that, but I don't see why anyone would intentionally trigger something so annoying.

Actually, that happened to me once when I was like 13, never happened again. On a school camping trip. I remember I ended up writing in my arm to impress my classmates. Itched like a bitch.

Do you live in a dry area? I know some people who have it and the offending agent seems to be dust. Or some combination of dryness and dust. Seems to be more common in people with other known allergies as well.

I think you're mixing things up. Dust itself usually is not the problem. What causes problems is that there are microscopic dust mites that live on shed human skin. The excretions of these dustmites may trigger some people's hayfever, asthma and or eczema. Living in a dry area doesn't have a thing to do with eczema.

Allergic triggers could be anything from the food you eat, to the type of clothes you wear to the products that come in contact with your skin. I'm already have to avoid wool, feathers, goat or any animal hair/fur made garments. Being near such things gives me a sneezing fit. If they touch my skin I could get a rash. If it's dusty, bits are flying around then my eyes will water and get swollen too or asthma could be triggered. No fur/feathered pets for me either.

Many with skin problems have dry skin because the skin doesn't form a normal protective barrier as it should. Instead it is faulty and needs to be constantly moisturised so the skin won't break down and trigger a rash. This has nothing to do with the environment. It will be a bit better or worse in certain places but the problem is still there.

Asthma, eczema/dermatitis and hayfever usually run in families. They'd call it being atopic. Allergies causing anaphylaxis also run in these families. I've had a nephew collaspe in anaphylactic shock when he was 12 and we still don't know what caused it. He was fortunate that the emergency number was called ASAP. His sister who had eaten peanuts before got a swollen tongue one day from eating peanut butter. She was given an epi-pen to use in case she developed anaphylaxis.

I count myself lucky that I've only had to have treatment once in my entire life in A & E for asthma and that was triggered by a car accident. My brother practically lived in the hospital as a child with asthma.

I see. You seem more knowledgeable about this than me. I used to have constant asthma-like problems when I was little due to my grandfather's heavy smoking. My symptoms subsided a few years after I moved away.

Since I'm one of those who wasn't fortunate to outgrow these things I had to learn more. My allergies are now worse than it was when I was a child.
