Dermatographia. I've had it myself. A light scratch will make you break out in welts. You can write on your skin. You can make it look like you were attacked by a demon or black people. Just remember to reverse the letters so you don't look like a dumb B ....

What happens when you twist her knobs?

A sandy hole opens up that sucks you in?

"Dermatographic urticaria (also known as dermographism, dermatographism or "skin writing") is a skin disorder seen in 4-5% of the world's population and is one of the most common types of urticaria, in which the skin becomes raised and inflamed when stroked, scratched, rubbed, and sometimes even slapped."

Could have sworn most everyone's skin can become 'raised' and inflamed when slapped, or have movies been lying to me again...

You've gotta get slapped pretty hard to cause a raised welt.

That was an unusually short article by Daily Fail standards. Where's the 20 different pics of her condition, and the 10-15 paragraphs to explain how it helps or destroys her life?

That was a Daily Star article. Are they related by chance? I figure it's british, what with "MUM" in all caps.

...and how it's costing taxpayers money while she drives an Escalade and lives in a Council house eating caviar.

She could be in a freak show, Ripley's Beleive It or Not, or even sell photos with messages on it for extra money. This actually seems cool compared to my ability to talk and anger people at the same time.

My skin used to be like this until I reached like 17. It was a fun lunch table trick in middle school for about thirty minutes.

I had a friend who could "write" on her skin with gold. I could take a gold ring, rub it across the back of her hand, and leave a mark. She claimed it was because she had a potassium deficiency.

Dayum girl, eat a nanner once in a while!

It's not that rare. Most people who have it take an allergy med to stop the reaction.

She certainly raised a swelling in ME.

"Sarah, of Arley, Warks..."

Arley, Warks???  WTF?


// I'd make some drawings on her.
