Wrap up. Moisturize.: It may be that you have COLD URTICARIA, a very common condition that leads to redness, itching and pain to exposed parts in the cold. The only effective remedy is prevention. Dress up warm with stockings on your legs. Get the blood flowing by exercising a little before you go out and treat dry skin areas with moisturizing cream.
