Dealing With Cold Urticaria
Urticaria, or hives, is a medical condition that causes itchy raised areas on the skin, and when it is in result of
cold temperatures it can be referred to as cold urticaria.
When you find that your body has been exposed to extremely cold temperatures, or even just cooler than normal, you
may find that you break out in a rash. If you have experienced this before but are unsure of what caused it, then
you should take the time to think back and remember if you were out in the cold before the hives appeared. If so,
then it is likely that your skin is sensitive to the cold.
People with sensitive skin are more prone to having conditions such as cold urticaria. Most people who have it due
to cold temperatures have a relatively easy time managing it. If you are prone to this condition, then it is best
to keep yourself out of cold air situations.
This will help to prevent this condition from ever becoming an issue. Hives can be a very uncomfortable condition
for people who have been inflicted with it. They can often be annoying and itchy.
Managing the cold urticaria does not have to be a difficult thing to do. If you have it, then taking something such
as an antihistamine will help you to relieve some of the symptoms that you may be bothered with.
The symptoms are the worst part of this condition. It is not normally a harmful condition, unless it causes you to
have shortness of breath or makes your heart beat abnormally. If you run into these complications, then you should
see your doctor immediately.
Do not let it get out of hand before you decide to have it seen about, because if you do it can be harder to
