Next step is to discuss it with a dermatologist if you match the symptoms. I really don't know about treatment but I do believe it doesn't go away.

I have this and it doesn't go away, or at least it hasn't yet.

Dress in layers and try and figure out what your threshhold is. I cannot tolerate temps below 38 degrees or so for long periods of time (15+ minutes).

My face isn't typically effected but my neck, hands, wrists, front of my thighs and feet generally are, sometimes my upper arms as well.

Typically I just try to avoid the cold or if I know I'm going to have be outside in it, I dress in lots of layers. I've got mittens and blankets and extra coats in my car so I'm never caught without.

I have visited many dermatologists and i have concluded that the medicines are only anti allergic and are not the solution. I have tried Many tricks also. Like oiling, mud masks, very hot showers and once i tried to stay in open area without clothing by exposing my body to maximum cold and fell ill for a week.

That should have been a clue.

Why do you assume there is a "solution" to your condition other than avoidace of cold and anti-histamines?

My daughter has this if you will research the web now doctors are saying that they have found missing DNA in certain cases. The mayo clinic is a good source to find out about this disease, it is chronic with no cure, my daughter hates it , people are scared of her at her job, people stair at her if she goes to the movies and there Is a temp drop. My daughter has to live around her disorder, she has to plan every day every night around this sickness,that has no cure. Yes she can take Zyrtec and other meds but then she lives in a fog of sleepy state. If you or your child have this please don't give up and understand that people in this world don't understand it when they see you all broke out. Please don't let this sickness control your life.i hope one day a cure will be found, so just like my daughter and others do not have to suffer.
