MN Boy Suffers From Unusual Skin Allergy To The Cold


One family in southwestern Minnesota is grateful the first big snow fall didn’t arrive until Monday. It’s because their 12-year old son is allergic to cold weather. Grant Schlager constantly needs to bundle up, be careful with cold drinks and pace himself with summer swimming. Schlager is from the small southern Minnesota town of Jackson…Research shows one in 2,000 people suffer from cold urticarial. “So it’s not quite as uncommon as people think it is,” Dr. Martha Hartz said.
