Wondering if anyone can link all of this togather. Started having eczema on palm of hands when pregnant in 2003. In Jan of 2004, started having cold induced urticaria-hives when exposed to temperatures under 60 degrees. In Feb of 2005, diagnosed with asthma. Now I have mild asthma that comes and goes with flareups usually in Feb. and milder flareups throughout the year. The eczema on the hands only appears in the summer. The cold induced urticaria flares up in colder months on any area that is exposed to the cold or wind (face, hands). It also flares up if holding anything cold (glass with ice cubes). Have had a range of blood tests including for lupus that turned up negative. The allergist says there seems to be no known cause for the cold allergy. Was treated earlier this year for elevated level of hpylori (occasional acid reflux). Not sure what causes the asthma and eczema. It seems though, that all of this symptoms are immune system related. Any insight would be appreciated.
