Allergic to the cold? A potentially life threatening allergy

By

Something as seemingly simple as playing outside in the snow is a big no no for someone suffering from cold induced urticaria or being allergic to the cold. Doctors say the allergy shows itself in the form of hives that appear after a relatively short time of being exposed to cold temperatures…Dr. Adela Taylor at Mayo Clinic Health System says reactions to cold allergies can vary widely from person to person. “Different people react at different temperatures, for some people they might react just below 50 degrees other people it may be closer to freezing,” Dr. Taylor explains.
