Have you heard that some people have an allergy to cold weather?

While many people get sick in cold weather, a small number develop an allergic reaction to the cold - literally. Much as with food and pollen allergies, reactions can include rashes, hives that can extend almost to an inch, closing of the throat and general itchiness.

Does anyone have a child that shows symptoms of a cold allergy?
