AnItchInTimeSaves9: Stick with me here: There's something called 'cold-induced urticaria,' which means something cold can cause hives,like sometimes exposure to cold can kick-off and asthma attack.Well,you don't have hives but you do have the itch, so try some Benadryl(no Rx needed)and see if that helps. In fact, take it before you go out into the cold. If that doesn't work then you'll need to see a doctor for tests
