Cold sensitivity....itchiness!

Postby momofseven » Fri Apr 06, 2007 12:11 am

OK, would somebody out there in meno-land just tell me that I am not the only person on planet earth with this weirdness?

When I am in a chilly situation (like outside on a breezy 60-ish day), my exposed parts--lower legs, hands, ears--will begin to turn red and start itching like the dickens!!! Other body parts that are covered and comfy do not do this, although one time I actually had this happen on my rear and the backs of my thighs from sitting on a very cold park bench! I have had this happen in the produce section just from handling a lot of cold things--the rest of me is fine, and my hands take off itching like the devil!! I call it "hives" but really, there are no welts, and when that part of me moderates back to a normal temp, it all just goes away.

Very weird. :??:

Well the cold does deplete the skin of moisture that can lead to itchiness. One of the reasons I love living down in God's waiting room and probably the ONLY reason I like the humidity down here is I barely even need to use a moisturizer. When I lived in CO (average humidity level 8%), but at least there my hairstyle would actually have a "style", down here the style can be great but thegumidity will wipe it out fairly quickly.

Thanks for sharing. This isn't dry skin. It comes and goes like an allergic reaction and it always has to do with a temperature thing--feet chilled from walking on the concrete in the morning, that sort of thing. Then, a little later, all is well again.
