Ketotifen in the treatment of symptomatic dermographism
Jacob Daniel, C Balachandran, CR Srinivas
The efficacy of ketotifen, a benzocyclo heptathiophene derivative was evaluated in 24 patients with symptomatic dermographism in a double-blind cross-over study. Dermographism was induced by a device at two different pressure before, during and after ketotifen treatment. Symptomatic improvement was seen during ketotifen therapy, but no benefit was observed with the placebo. However lesions recurred few days after stopping the treatment.
