Hello Nia,


Complaints of skin bumps and itching when pressed may lead to dermatographia conditions. Dermatographia is a skin condition that is prone to swelling / swelling that feels itchy after the skin has been scratched or pressed excessively and then the bumps disappear after 30 minutes.


The exact cause of dermatographia is not known, but it may be related to allergic reactions, scratches and scratches, skin infections, stress, and consumption of certain drugs. The main treatment of dermatographia is prevention. Other treatment is to reduce the symptoms that arise, for example, with antihistamine drugs and calamine lotion.


Here are some tips you can do:

Keep skin moisturized so skin does not dry out
Avoid scratching or pressing on the skin
Avoid things that trigger skin irritation
Wear loose clothing
Avoid bathing in hot water
Get used to a healthy lifestyle: adequate rest, regular exercise, drinking lots of water, avoiding stress
Use calamine lotion if bumps and itching occur to reduce complaints of itching

If you feel worried, you can consult further with a dermatologist so that an examination is carried out to confirm your condition and you can be given maximum treatment.
