My Daughter's hands hands are very itchy with something called "Popsicle Panniculitis" or "Cold Panniculitis." It is inflammation of the fat cells under the first layers of skin caused by direct cold contact with popsicles, or other cold items. She started getting a rash like appearance on her palms, one and then the other... in the beginning of July. It all started during the first hot spell of the summer when I gave her popsicles that had cold handles. The doctors diagnosed her with Eczema at first and we were using a cold compress (as per directions from the nurse) to sooth it, not realizing it was making matter worse. Since then, it has gotten extremely itchy for her (for the past 10 days) keeping us both up at night. Her hands do seem to be on the mend, tho it is hard to tell because the itching seems to be staying strong. Fingers crossed it will all pass soon!
