In Reply to: Allergic to the Cold??? posted by Beth on January 14, 2000 at 09:59:03:
: Is there a such thing as being allergic to the cold? If so, I am. Has anyone ever heard of this?
Yep, me. I am allergic to the cold, too. Unfortunately, when I found this out, I was residing in Vermont. I went out one crisp but sunny fall day for a walk, and when I got inside, I had hives all over my arms and face. Come winter, it only got worse. Of course, even a trip to the grocery store can be a problem, if I need to buy a lot of meat or produce. And, if I run to the store for a pint of ice cream, I'd better remember to grab a shopping basket, lest I have to wait in a long line.The hives go away fairly quickly on their own. In a half hour to an hour they're all gone. So, it's fairly easy to cope with.
