QAHA Cold Allergy?
good afternoon, sorry to ask if after holding ice or exposed to cold air (when riding a motorbike example) reddish hands and itchy (or creaking) at the tip of the finger including cold allergy or not huh? Guess how to deal with it. As far as I know allergies to cold just in the form of bumps and itching on the body. Please explain, thanks in advance
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itchy and reddish skin after contact with ice or cold air can indeed be a sign of cold allergies. This condition is thought to occur related to genetic (hereditary) and environmental factors. Not only that, in more severe cases, cold allergies can also make sufferers experience bumps, swelling, tightness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and many other complaints. Mild conditions can often improve on their own as long as allergy triggers have been avoided.
In addition to cold allergies, other substance allergies (for example food, medicine, latex, dust) can also trigger complaints on the skin as you experience. Other conditions, for example skin infections, stress, excessive skin pressure, heavy physical activity, immune disorders, atopic dermatitis, insect bites, seborrheic dermatitis, etc. can also trigger itching, redness, and bumps on the skin.
If you experience this complaint very often, our advice, don't leave it. Check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist so you can evaluate the cause and how to best handle it. Allergy tests, blood tests, and other supporting tests may also be done by doctors if deemed necessary.
Avoid triggers that often make your complaints worse, for example by avoiding contact with cold substances
Wear warm clothes and drink plenty of warm water when in a cold environment
Don't scratch excessive itchy skin, especially with dirty hands or long nails
On itchy skin, just apply calamine lotion to reduce itching
Take a diligent bath, wear clean, loose, and soft clothing (such as cotton, not linen)
Be diligent in doing relaxation, meditation, don't stress excessively
Do not carelessly take drugs, including anti-allergic drugs, without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
