Hi itching during cold conditions only is called cold urticaria.it can be cured by taking measures to keep the body wet always .then use atarax 25 mg at night.alaspan in the morning and application of calamine lotion can cure the condition.if no response use oral steriods like wysolone 10 daily three times tapered to once daily
