What could cause your skin to break out in a rash and hives whenever you are in contact with a cold object or even cold water?
Its an ice allergy - there is an actually medical name for it
but athletic trainers call it an ice allergy. I have the same
problem and I went to the Doctor and they told me just to take an
antihistamine before being in the cold for a extended period of
time. I know my friends who are athletic training majors have to
ask all the players if they have an ice allergy before they wrap
them in ice - so its not like its completely unheard of.
