When the whether is cold outside my hands feet and head begin to get hot and those body parts begin to itch and swell. What is this and what can I do?

In brief: Cold urticaria

I have seen this response to heat, and there is something similar that occurs in the cold known as cold allergy.
You can have it tested for and confirmed by an allergist. Here is a wikipedia article: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/cold_urticaria.
