Allergy Stories: Chapter 6


My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter recently was out in the cold weather and came back in the house with bright red cheeks which were bumpy. My daughter brought her to the pediatrician who told her it was a case of hives brought on by the cold! I had never heard of this before but sure enough, after she got the hives, and my daughter brought her back into the house, after she warmed up the redness and the hives disappeared!

The doctor told her it would be a good idea to apply a gentle lotion on her cheeks before she heads out into the cold again!

Wow! Very interesting! I've never heard of that before. Typically hives are associated with allergies, so I wonder if this could be classified as some sort of allergy/intolerance to extreme cold air...?

I'm glad that it's something that can be managed! Sweet little girls don't need hives!
