Dermatologist 's  Response
Thanks for asking,
dermographism is type of urticaria.
Symptoms can be induced by periods of stress, tight clothing, watches, glasses, heat, cold,or anything that causes stress to the skin.
It  can be treated by antihistamines. These may need to be given as a combination of H1 antagonists, or possibly with an H2-receptor antagonist such as cimetidine.
Not taking hot baths or showers may help if it is generalized , allergy tests may uncover substances the patient is allergic to.
 Using hypo-allergenic soaps 
While cromoglycate, which prevents histamine from being released from mast cells can be used.
small amounts of alcohol may help with the itching, or temporary help.
