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.
