My 10 and 5 yr old son's experience intense burning of their feet and hands during temperature changes. It starts when they are outside usually 80 degrees and above. Our Dr told us they are producing to much histamine and temp changes can make their feet and hands burn and freeze. He told us to give them a antihistamine at night and day. Benadryl at night and another anithistamine during the day. But this is not working. Some days they can get out and play for hrs before they start burning and other days it may not. They have no blisters or reddenning of the skin. When they start burning we usually get them inside. They usually have a problem at night sleeping as they are moving their feet and hands constantly while in bed. Does anyone know what causes this burning and freezing of the hands and feet during sudden temp changes. They have no problems during the fall and winter months. Usually just from April thru August.

  • Try giving them vitamin B1 (thiamine). Don't know why they would need it, but sometimes it helps this kind of pain. Or, a B complex vitamin.Vitamin C helps for allergies.
