Woman Irritated by Her Own Touch

In an amazing case, Hannah Arbuthnott has revealed she has a condition called dermatographia. It is a unique condition that affects 1 in 20 people. What makes it different is the fact that she is allergic to her own touch.

The condition is also known as "skin writing." Arbuthnott said "It will go away on its own. The medication is to get you to that point. They have no idea why it goes away, why it even starts in the first place." Arbuthnott's skin gets inflamed when her skin is scratched or lightly touched.

Arbuthnott goes on to say that unique patterns can be created on the skin. She explains "That's the kind of fun part of the condition. You can kind of draw smiley faces and messages to yourself and they stay there for half and hour."
