Hi everyone! I'm not sure if this is the right place or not, but is like to talk about something that I've been dealing with my whole life. I have cold urticaria, a condition that Google defines as "Rare". Cool, right?
Ever since I was two years old (fourteen now) whenever I would go out in the snow, or go in the cold section of the grocery store, or even outside on a chilly day, I would start itching, getting red splotches all over my body, and hives!
The doctors have always said that I would "grow out of it", but here I am 14 years later, and it hasn't changed! Now going into highschool I'm going to have to miss out on a lot of things, like marching band. I am crazy about playing trumpet, and that really gets me down.
I came to write here because I wanted to know if any of you have the same condition as I do, or possibly heat urticaria. I also want to know, that if you do have this condition, is there anything that helped you with symptoms, or got rid of it completely? I know it's wishful thinking, but I'd like to just be normal haha.
