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 ...Read more

Hi, I have had the swelling on the back of hand not palm for 3 days now, and it itches occasionally ?

Hand swelling: Hand swelling not due to injury or an insect bite and with associated itching suggests angioedema which is an allergic reaction. However this type of swelling generally subsides after 24 hours or so. For this reason I feel an insect bite is more likely in your case. If the hand swelling persists, becomes painful or develops redness, have a physician examine you for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
