Question
Posted by: Nicola | 2010/05/10

weather rash

I get welts on my upper legs,thighs when out in the cold for longer than 15 mins. Even when its a warm day, if im on my bike and the wind is really cold I get them. Only this winter not last winter? They look like massive mosquito bites but about 20 times the size! really itchy and sore but only last for 30 mins. Could it be bad blood circulation?
Hope you can help!

Hallo Nicola
It is a type of allergy. See http://dermatology.about.com/cs/hives/a/coldurt.htm
It may help to take an anti-histamine like Allergex as needed 8 hourly

Thank you so much Dr Bets :) the doctors here (London) are a bit useless and takes SO long to diagnose you, now that I kind of know what I have maybe im going to rather see my doctor in SA when i come home in August! i should be ok for now when it starts to get warmer here but just worry about winter again!
Many Thanks
Nicola
