    every year its the same thing for me: once it starts to warm up i get a cold. have to get robitussin, sudafed, mucinex, etc. and i tend to drink my meals. dont know why it works out like that but it blows chunks.

    Yes! My daughter- she had very bad eczema as a child. It's so weird. I always thought it was the sunscreen we were using. It happens every year the first day she is out in the sun for an extended time- a day at the beach or the pool. Has been happening for years. We switch sunscreens, and have bought every one on the market. All the exspenisve super hypoallergenic ones too. Funny thing is after that first batch of hives, we give her Benadryl and zyrtec for a few days, and they go away and she can use any sunscreen :dontknow: and is fine all summer long.

    I recently ran into someone who says she has the same issue with the cold. Whenever she is first out in the cold all day, in the snow or maybe in cold water she breaks out in hives. She was diagnosed by a dermatologist and told me what it was called but I forget.
    Sorry I don't really have any advice to give you.

    I do think that's what it is. Are to taking an antishistamine? Like Zyrtec or Claritin? I would try that. Good luck!
