Got a mosquito bite last summer around my eye. Now, everytime I go out in the cold, it turns red like I got a bite again. Why is this happening?

In brief: Residual allergy

The is hypersensitivity to walled off foreign material.
Cold is causing the area to react and swell, creams coukd help but if it very localized a microscopic foreign body may be persitent. See opthamologist if minor surgery is an option.

In brief: Reaction

Sometimes after an insect bite the body develops a persistent bite reaction.
This reaction can come and go as you describe. There are also other similar conditions that would really need a dermatologist's eye.
