Itchy Body And Bumps When Allergic To Cold?
Last night, I once consulted a general practitioner, and he said I have a cold allergy. Every time I get cold wind or rain, I definitely get hot and cold from 39 degrees then it goes down to 32 degrees and keeps going up and down like that, then my body also itch and hives appear. But last Monday I got cold and my vision turned yellow after that I was nauseous and passed out. Why is that? what is the solution? Thank you in advance.
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Cold allergy in medical terms is called urticaria and is a skin reaction to cold which is characterized by the appearance of red, itchy patches. This condition is triggered by the release of certain substances in the body called histamine due to the presence of cold air. Cold allergy conditions should not affect a person's body temperature to become a fever.
Cold allergies are more likely to occur in those who have the following risk factors:
Age of children and adolescents Have a history of infections such as pneumonia or pneumonia Hereditary from parents Basic diseases such as cancer or hepatitis
Then about nausea and fainting, at one time if the reaction is severe, it could be due to extreme cold or your immune system is low, cold allergies can cause symptoms of shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, blood pressure drops, swelling of arms and legs, palpitations, until fainting.
But if it's not caused by a cold allergy, at that time you may indeed experience:
Low blood pressure Low blood sugar level Lack of red blood cells
Our advice, check back with your doctor if this is getting more frequent. Regarding home care solutions, what you can do is:
Avoid consuming cold food or drinks Avoid cold air as much as possible by wearing a jacket or blanket Take medications that have been prescribed by a doctor If you must pass through cold air, prepare or take drugs that contain antihistamines
I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
