Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition that you are experiencing, is most likely a symptom called dermatografia. Dermatografia, which is sometimes also called "skin writing" is a condition where pressure, scratching or slight friction on the skin makes an impression, becomes a deep wound or even turns into an allergic reaction.
There is no exact cause why this condition occurs, but among the triggering factors and which can increase the risk are:
Stress Allergy History Infections Side effects of certain drugs Having dry skin Aging young adults Having a disease of the thyroid gland Having a nervous breakdown
This condition usually does not have special treatment because the reason is also still unknown and can actually improve by itself in a relatively fast time. This condition is also harmless and has no long-term effects. However, if this condition is already very annoying or has occurred in a long period of time, you should check with your dermatologist to see more about the condition. Your dermatologist will only dig up your history by asking you a few questions regarding your condition, and do a simple test by pressing down on a portion of your skin. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of the inspection.
Meanwhile, you can try using over-the-counter antihistamines by reading the rules of use listed, or by applying tea tree oil and aloe vera to the skin. So, hopefully answering your question.
