Man almost dies from an allergy to cold air

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Stepping out of a hot shower into a cold bathroom almost killed a Colorado man, who had developed a serious allergic reaction to cold temperatures.

The 34-year-old old man collapsed after getting out of the shower, and his family found him on the floor, according to a report of the case published October 27 in The Journal of Emergency Medicine.

The man was struggling to breathe and his skin was covered in hives. He was experiencing a life-threatening, whole-body allergic reaction known as anaphylaxis.

When paramedics arrived, his family told them that the man had a history of being "allergic to the cold weather", according to the report. He had previously experienced hives as a reaction to the cold, but not anaphylaxis.

Maybe Colorado isn't the best place to live if you are allergic to cold ?
