Cold urticaria: Hives induced by cold contact is fairly common and one of the "physical urticaria." covering up those skin areas exposed to cold is important and treatment with new generation antihistamines like zyrtec (cetirizine) can help. Avoid jumping into cold water (lakes, pools, rivers) as a serious allergic reaction could occur. An allergist can confirm diagnosis with "ice cube test.".
