10 Possible Causes for Dermatographia, Hypersensitive to Stimuli

  • Urticaria

    Commonly, acute urticaria has an allergic basis as a type I hypersensitivity state mediated by IgE.[apps.who.int] Other causes include: infections, including viruses exercise anxiety or stress sun exposure exposure to cold, such as cold water or snow contact with chemicals scratching (dermatographia[kidshealth.org] Pressure Urticaria –Pressure urticaria is a form of hives and wheals that develop in response to physical pressure (similar to dermatographia).[cholinergicurticaria.net]

  • Systemic Mastocytosis

    When activated by IgE or other stimuli, mast cells release preformed mediators of inflammation.[aafp.org] […] usually occurs as a solitary lesion in infants. systemic mastocytosis signs and symptoms: constitutional; fatigue, fever, weight loss skin manifestations; urticaria, pruritus, dermatographia[e-immunohistochemistry.info] These mediators initiate a leukocyte–cytokine cascade that contributes to the acute and delayed hypersensitivity reactions and the various cutaneous and systemic manifestations[aafp.org]

  • Nonallergic Urticaria

    […] to physical stimuli such as scratching, friction from clothing or other objects, light, heat, cold, water or vibration Autoimmune conditions such as systemic lupus erythematosus[bpac.org.nz] Other causes include: infections, including viruses exercise anxiety or stress sun exposure exposure to cold, such as cold water or snow contact with chemicals scratching (dermatographia[kidshealth.org] […] animal dander, pollen, feathers Contact Food- milk, egg whites, peanuts, shellfish, and fish Mosquito and flea bites Non-allergic Stress Viral infections- hepatitis, EBV Dermatographia[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]

  • Angioedema

    […] from external stimuli eg food, drugs, insect stings, pollen, animal dander; patients with known atopic conditions (asthma, eczema, hay fever, urticarial) are at higher risk[entsho.com] ., dermatographia or cold urticaria) in that histologic studies reveal a prominent cellular infiltrate around small venules, with an increased number of mast cells.[worldallergy.org] .  Angioedemas with identifiable etiologies include those caused by the following:  Hypersensitivity (eg, food, drugs, or insect stings)  Physical stimuli (eg, cold or[slideshare.net]

  • Schizophrenia

    Must et al., 2013 ), while the deficient performance of manic patients results from their hypersensitivity to high rewards ( Cassidy et al., 1998 ).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Yes, there it was: dermatographia. Certainty returned.[web.archive.org] Although depressed patients are also impaired in the task, it appears their poor performance is a result of greater sensitivity to punishing stimuli ( Adida et al., 2011,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diffuse Cutaneous Mastocytosis

    When activated by IgE or other stimuli, mast cells release preformed mediators of inflammation.[aafp.org] Darier’s sign was negative, but dermatographia was evident. KOH (potassium hydroxide) preparation was negative for dermatophytosis or candidiasis.[omicsonline.org] […] usually occurs as a solitary lesion in infants. systemic mastocytosis signs and symptoms: constitutional; fatigue, fever, weight loss skin manifestations; urticaria, pruritus, dermatographia[e-immunohistochemistry.info]

  • Cutaneous Mastocytosis

    When activated by IgE or other stimuli, mast cells release preformed mediators of inflammation.[aafp.org] Darier’s sign was negative, but dermatographia was evident. KOH (potassium hydroxide) preparation was negative for dermatophytosis or candidiasis.[omicsonline.org] She did not have dermatographia. White blood cell count was 6.8 10 3 /μL, with 19% monocytes and 1% eosinophils.[current-oncology.com]

  • Mastocytosis

    Activation by immunoglobulin E or other stimuli causes the mast cells to degranulate and release preformed mediators of inflammation that initiate the acute and delayed hypersensitivity[nature.com] […] usually occurs as a solitary lesion in infants. systemic mastocytosis signs and symptoms: constitutional; fatigue, fever, weight loss skin manifestations; urticaria, pruritus, dermatographia[e-immunohistochemistry.info] When activated by IgE or other stimuli, mast cells release preformed mediators of inflammation.[aafp.org]

  • Telangiectasia Macularis Eruptiva Perstans

    When activated by IgE or other stimuli, mast cells release preformed mediators of inflammation.[aafp.org] She did not have dermatographia. White blood cell count was 6.8 10 3 /μL, with 19% monocytes and 1% eosinophils.[current-oncology.com] These mediators initiate a leukocyte–cytokine cascade that contributes to the acute and delayed hypersensitivity reactions and the various cutaneous and systemic manifestations[aafp.org]

  • Cutaneous Mastocytoma

    When activated by immunoglobulin E or other stimuli, mast cells release preformed mediators of inflammation, leading to acute and delayed hypersensitivity reactions.[consultant360.com] Darier’s sign was negative, but dermatographia was evident. KOH (potassium hydroxide) preparation was negative for dermatophytosis or candidiasis.[omicsonline.org] When activated by IgE or other stimuli, mast cells release preformed mediators of inflammation.[aafp.org]
