It is said that “the skin is the window into the body” and therefore we can see various manifestations of the skin in health and in many diseases. For example, try examining “dermographism” with yourself or your child. Make a line or cross on your upper chest by pressing your finger. In a moment in people with increased irritation, a distinctive pattern appears, rising above the surface, as is known in urticaria.

Premiere: November 16, 2019 in Zahrada – Center of Independent Culture, Banská Bystrica
