hi everyone i am just wondering if any parents have had any problems with their child developing hives when they go out in this very cold weather. since novemeber we have noticed that out son gets hives on places he is not covered eg,his cheeks and if he doesnt wear his gloves his hands .. he also complains of feeling the cold much more than other children and he becomes more breathless when he is outside rather than in.. i am aware that one of his triggers is running around in the cold and although we try to encourage him not to do too much of this he is a 5year old boy who loves nothing more than to run about..
my main concern is what may be causing these hives, he is atopic and does suffer with asthma, eczema havefever/rhinitis and was allergic to dairy products until oct last year. but i have never heard of children suffering from allergins to cold weather
please i would be grateful if anyone who has experienced this toshed some light..
