Is There A Doctor In The House


Well hello fellow blog readers...........Tis I! Can you even believe that I'm here? I can barely,but I plan on being around much more often.I just needed a good slap.

Ok, I need someone to take a look at this picture of my daughter and tell me why she does this if she is outside for any period of time.Perhaps she got snow on her face too.Now in this picture, it isn't quite as bad and is just around her eye.Generally the welts are around her mouth and there are more of them.I asked her if she got hit with something and she said no.Her brothers were out with her and they said that nothing happened. I have been called up to the school before after recess to give her Benadryl. I did the same last night and it does go away,so I know that it isn't an injury.

Check it out,and tell me if you have ever heard tell of the cold making people get welts. I should add that out temperatures are not bone chilling! This is not frostbite.It wasn't far below zero and she was dressed appropriately. It is only on skin that is exposed.She wasn't outside 10 minutes either.

Oh my, I have no idea why the cold would cause this ... have you asked your doctor?

Nicole said...

wow, that is weird..I haven't heard or seen that before? has her Dr. seen it?

See it is hard for me to show the Dr. unless he plays outside with her.I think I'll call her allergist and see what he says.I guess you can have an allergy to the cold.It is very bizarre! I specialize in bizarre things you know.....LOL

Poor girl!!! I hope they have a solution for her, it must not be fun to have that every time she goes out.

Yes, Julie, a neighbor of mine gets welts and swells up in the cold. Dr's have told her she is allergic to the cold. I have a far removed distant cousin who was also allergic to the cold - almost killed him before they found out! I am thinkin' that's what's going on here... Let me know how that turns out???
