Diagnosed with dermatographism, bumps in throat, have GERD. Suggest?

Hi! I am a 37 year old female, 5 7, good physical condition (all normal blood panel results) and have been diagnosed with dermatographism. I have had a feeling of cotton balls in the very back of my throat since july and have seen 3 ent s, an allergist as well as my PCP. They cannot find anything wrong with me. I have had a nasal scope, been diagnosed with GERD and consequently on Nexium for 2 months with no change. So, now i continue to have this pain in the back of my throat with no answers. I am wondering if it is just a symptom of dermatographism... one ENT is suggesting a tonsilectomy. Thoughts?? Thank you for your time and consideration of my case...

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for asking a question to H.C.M.Forum.
Dermatographism is itchy bulges on the skin due to pressure on the skin of cloths scratches etc due to allergy. Of course the problem in the throat is also can be due to allergy, or infection. The difficulty in swallowing could be due to G.E.R.D. due to gastric irritation .
I advise you to consult a gastro enterologist for diagnosis and treatment of G.E.R.D.
wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
