Cold: what to look for

It should be remembered that symptoms of cold allergy can occur not only during or after going out, but also, for example, after eating cold ice cream. In some people itching or rash may appear immediately after getting cold, others - after they have returned to a warm room. Often, symptoms become visible when the thermometer column drops below 4 degrees C, but in some cases, cold allergy can begin at a higher temperature. In windy and humid weather, the probability of an allergy is higher, and if you take cold objects with your bare hands, then you risk in a few minutes to see swelling in your palms.

Caution, danger!

In the most severe variant of the development of allergy to cold, the disease affects not only the skin, but the whole body. A person may lose consciousness, feel "cloudiness in the eyes." In some cases, tachycardia and swelling around the body begin. This manifestation of allergy is called systemic reaction and requires urgent treatment to a doctor.

Let's look at the reasons

When we are in danger, our hormonal system begins to produce histamine. In some people, the development of this hormone increases not only in critical situations, but also on exit to a cold street. Scientists believe that the cause of such a non-standard reaction of the body can be congenital or acquired increased sensitivity of skin cells to cold temperatures.

Be careful!

Cold allergy can occur in almost any person, but one must be especially careful with those who have not yet crossed the 25th anniversary. According to statistics, this disease is more often encountered by women than men. The risk of developing an allergy increases such diseases as mononucleosis and mycoplasma, hepatitis, cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. In children, cold allergy often accompanies dysbiosis, dermatitis or manifests itself after suffering from colds.

Children and cold

Parents always rejoice with the rosy brushes of the baby who has returned from the walk, but if the redness does not go even for several hours - it should alert adults. In some cases, children begin to scratch reddened areas that may occur not only on the face but also on the inner surface of the legs, knees and hips. Externally, such rashes resemble rash, their color may range from white to pink. The most common manifestations of allergy occur without treatment in a few hours.

Unusual symptoms

Allergy to the cold is not always manifested in the form of reddened, itchy rashes. Eyes that begin to tear after a walk on a frosty street, swollen edema, cracked lips, "catch" in the corners of the mouth may be not only due to lack of vitamins or herpes. The cause of these unpleasant symptoms is often an allergy to cold. There is another symptom that can be confused with a cold: a cough after a walk in the street, wheezing and nose laying.

How to fight

Scientists have established that cold allergy is most commonly seen in people with concealed or chronic liver disease, pancreas and the gastrointestinal system. Therefore, if you notice a negative reaction to cold - visit the therapist and complete the examination of the whole body. Anti-allergic drugs rarely help with allergies of this species, much better results are given by a diet, picked up by a doctor, rest in a sanatorium and hardening.
