How can i train in cold weather?

Dress appropriately

There is an extraordinary amount of new high technology clothing to allow you to keep warm in cold weather. These include multi-layered and very thin high performance undergarments and other non-bulky and moisture controlling outerwear. Any ski shop, outdoor shop or athletic or runners supply shop (particularly those in warm weather climates) can help you get equipped safely.

No. Illnesses are caused by virused, bacteria and fungi. They are not caused by temperature. However, certain viruses and bacteria thrive in cold months. This means you child is more likely to be exposed to these illnesses during the cold months.

Dr. Paul M. Carter answered:

Is cold weather a cause of hives?

Can be.

Hives
Cold induced urticaria is caused by cooling of the skin by a variety of mechanisms. It can happen with exposure to cold air, cold or cool water, reaching into the freezer, holding a cold drink, etc. This results in the release of histamine from the mast cells in the skin and a hive develops.

Many patients are sensitive to cold weather. It can cause spasm of blood flow to the skin resulting in itching. It can also cause dry skin which also causes itching. Use a good emollient and keep your extremities warm with appropriate shoes and gloves.

Dr. Marci Dietrich answered:

do I burn more calories in cold weather?

Cold weather wt loss

Extremity-upper-hand
If you are "cold" and do not wear appropriate clothes for the climate. the answer is a qualified "yes"; a few more but not significant enough to try nudity in the Arctic as a weight loss plan. Frostbite could kill you. On the other hand, if you are more active in the winter-ski snowshoe, snowboard, shovel snow and don't compensate with more food, you can lose weight and become more fit.
