Avatar f tn After looking into it, what you have is truly an allergy to cold. Refered to as 'cold urticaria'.

Avatar f tn I know the names cold urticaria and cold sore are similar by coincidence and that the cold sores could have originally been caused by the stress of the sudden cold urticaria, but is there any other possible connections between cold sores and cold urticaria or something that could cause both of these? Thank you!
Avatar m tn I will get severe sores in my mouth and on tongue, and on/ and in eyes. Severe lip swelling, cold sweats, and trouble breathing. These outbreaks get worse with each. I have seen a dermatologist, ENT, Internal Medicine and Allergist. Tested negative to herpes and food allergies. No one has been able to diagnosis me or provide much help. Valtex is the only medication that will slowlyl subside the symptoms.

478342 tn?1241369352 Hi, People who have a physical urticaria have a physical trigger for their hives, such as pressure, heat, cold, sunlight, water or exercise. Up to 20 to 30 percent of people with chronic urticaria have a physical cause. Cholinergic or heat urticaria is a form of chronic hives that is caused by an increase in body temperature. Hives are caused by any increase in body temperature, such as hot showers, exercise, spicy foods, or being under too many covers in bed at night.
Avatar m tn Whenever I eat or drink anything too cold my chest starts to choke and I start having breathing problems and it gets scary as if I will go into a cardiac arrest and it gets normal automatically after a few minutes. Also I am on medication for Cold Urticaria. Has anyone got any idea as to what I am facing?
Avatar f tn In this case you need to rule out the cause for the hives or urticaria. Urticaria is usually triggered by allergens, such as drugs, foods, insect bites, inhaled substances, in response to sunlight, cold, heat, stress, exercise, or a viral infection. Other common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, or cosmetics. Food allergies like to gluten and alcohol too should be looked into. It could also be due to new soap, talcum powder, clothes etc.

Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with cold urticaria seven years ago. I would like to get to know people who has the same allergie. I have no hives, only swelling of the mouth, coughing and choking if exposed to cold air, air condition, fridge, freezer, drinking cold drinks, etc. I have to use gloves to touch anyting cold otherwise my fingers will swell and get very red, or have broken blod vessels as a results. No medication is working, avoidance is the answer. Maybe someone out there have the magic answer?
Avatar m tn Chronic urticaria is often accompanied by coexistent physical urticaria, triggered by environmental exposure to heat, cold, sunlight, vibration, pressure on the skin or even exercise.Pls discuss this possibility with your dermatologist. Hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn One month ago ( around the time that I stopped nursing my 10-month-old) I started getting random lip swelling. From there it turned into itchy hives all over my body. I got a lot of blood work done for my allergist and immunologist everything came back normal but my CU index (chronic urticaria) was slightly elevated suggesting it's autoimmune response. He tested for a large variety of autoimmune disorders. The doctor is treating my symptoms with Zantac, Zyrtec, and Singulair.
Avatar n tn // Cholinergic Urticaria can be from an increase to your body temp, or a nervous system stimuli - There is also something called thermal allodynia, which is pain from mild temp changes. Have you seen a doctor about it?
Avatar f tn For the past couple of months I've noted my finger and feet are always cold. Lately, I've noticed that when it gets really bad (when they're very cold) I develop hives on my ankles. I have cold urticaria, which is an allergy to the cold, but i'm pretty sure it's only external stimuli, not internal. Could this be a blood circulation problem or something else? Thank you.
Avatar n tn Hello, These symptoms can be due to cold urticaria. Diagnosis can be made by an ice-cube test. Place an ice cube on your forearm for 4 minutes and observe the area for 10 minutes afterwards. If you have cold urticaria, the area will become itchy and then swell approximately 2 minutes after removing the ice cube. Treatment is avoiding exposure to cold stimuli, including swimming or bathing in cold water. You can take antihistaminics like zyrtec or tegamet.
Avatar m tn There is a thing called cold urticaria, as well as heat urticaria. Some people get hives in response to too much heat or too much cold, or sometimes other triggers (my grandfather apparently gets it from water--my grandmother jokes he's the only boy allergic to soap and water). I don't think it's at all dangerous, just annoying, and the only thing I know of to do is avoid the trigger.
Avatar f tn Being the new one, what appears to be cold urticaria. My hand, knuckel and front of my legs get extremeley red, break out in hives and itch and burn like crazy when I step outside now that the weather is getting cold in the greal lake region. My skin is also very dry... I googled cold urticaria and it points out to hepatitis and/or HIV.
