What is dermatagraphism, you ask? I had never heard of it until we took Alex to the doctor because of this funky rash he had. He had a rash or welts anywhere we touched him or if he would rub up against something he would get all rashy.
The doctor took one look at him and said, "dermatagraphism." I had to ask Taun several times to tell me what the dr. called it because I could never remember how to say it.
When we looked it up it said, "dermatagraphism; the ability to write on skin."
That is exactly what we could do, write words on his skin (barely touching him) and seconds later he would have a welt in the form of whatever word we wrote.
