Skin problem rashes
Today morning i noticed rashes on my body.. Like on my hand, neck & waist. These are lines like someone scratched it.. I attached the images. My room partner just moved in a week ago & he had the same problem. Do i got it from him?/should i go see dermatologist? Or any basic medication u would suggest could help??

Hi. Greetings. This may not be related to your room mate. However, this looks to be symptomatic dermographism - a type of urticaria. This can be managed by using oral antihistamines and by avoiding snatching. See a dermatologist near you for work up if the problem is chronic or troublesome. Warm regards, Dr Govind S Mittal, excel care hospital, Bangalore
