Common Questions and Answers about Cold urticaria onset

Avatar m tn As I mentioned to you earlier the very diagnosis of aquagenic urticaria, by definition hinges on the finding of urticaria produced byANY water at ANY temperature.The whealing is not dependent on other factors. If temperature varies and that is the factor it it would be more of a cholinergic urticaria. While I am indeed a physician, here my capacity is that of a community member! Best wishes.
Avatar f tn Hello, Without examination,confirming a diagnosis is tough but it can be due to cold allergy or due to electrolyte imbalance in the body. Cold urticaria is a disorder characterized by the rapid onset of itchiness, redness and swelling of the skin within minutes after exposure to a cold stimulus. Patients typically experience symptoms while outside on cold, windy or rainy days.
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 n tn Hello, Your symptoms can be due to cold urticaria. Cold urticaria is a disorder characterized by the rapid onset of itchiness, redness and swelling of the skin within minutes after exposure to a cold stimulus. Patients typically experience symptoms while outside on cold, windy or rainy days. Fatalities following swimming have been reported and those affected should be warned that swimming or having a cold bath could be dangerous. Diagnosis can be made by an ice-cube test.
Avatar f tn Hello, These symptoms can be due to cold urticaria. Cold urticaria is a disorder characterized by the rapid onset of itchiness, redness and swelling of the skin within minutes after exposure to a cold stimulus. 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.
Avatar f tn After looking into it, what you have is truly an allergy to cold. Refered to as 'cold urticaria'. With cold urticaria, exposure to cold temperatures causes redness, itching, swelling and hives on your skin. People with cold urticaria should avoid exposure to cold air or water as much as possible. (Source: Mayo Clinic, http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/cold-urticaria/DS01160) This completely agrees with everything you have said, and thus proves your cold allergy.

Avatar n tn //www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/cold-urticaria/symptoms-causes/syc-20371046 Cholinergic Urticaria can be from an increase to your body temp, or a nervous system stimuli - https://www.webmd.com/allergies/cholinergic-urticaria-facts There is also something called thermal allodynia, which is pain from mild temp changes. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/symptoms/21570-allodynia 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.

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.
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 n tn Hi, From what you describe you seem to be having cold urticaria or cold hives. Are you allergic to any specific food substances or do you have allergic reactions otherwise? You should consult your doctor for a confirmed diagnosis and a proper clinical evaluation. You should try and avoid exposure to cold and also antihistamine or antiallergic medications would definitely help you. The cold allergies are known to last for variable periods of time in different individuals.
