LAST YEAR, MORE THAN 1 MILLION KIDS PARTICIPATED.>>>WELL, IT’S SOMETHING PEOPLE CLAIM ON SOCIAL MEDIA, THEY’RE ALLERGIC TO THE COLD. YOU HAVE SAID IT.>>I SOMETIMES FEEL LIKE I AM. YOU CAN SEE THE POSTS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, FUNNY MEMES MAKING LIGHT OF THE IDEA. THAT HAD US WONDERING IF IT’S A REAL THING.>>THAT’S RIGHT. DUSTIN GROVE ACTUALLY LOOKED INTO IT FOR US AND FOUND AN INTERESTING ANSWER, I THINK.>>IT IS A THING.>>YEAH.>>GOOD MORNING, BEN AND JULIA, LIKE ANY OTHER ALLERGIES, SOME PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH IT, OTHERS CAN DEVELOP IT OVER TIME. IT IS RARE. I FACETIMED WITH AN EXPERT FROM THE MAYO CLINIC WHO SAID IT’S AN ACTUAL CONDITION AND SEEN IT PERSONALLY.>>ONE OF MY BROTHER’S BEST FRIENDS WERE ALLERGIC TO THE COLD AND BROKE OUT IN HIVES IF OUT IN THE COLD, AND WE LIVE IN WISCONSIN.>>THE PHYSICIAN’S ASSISTANT TOLD ME IT CAN BE JUST HIVES, BUT IT CAN BE NOTHING TO LAUGH ABOUT AT ALL CAUSING SWELLING AND PROBLEMS BREATHING IN SOME EXTREME CASES. THE WAY TO TREAT IT IS LIKE ANY OTHER ALLERGY, TAKE THE ANTIHISTAMINE, BUT IT’S NOT JUST THE AIR THEY ARE ALLERGIC, BUT ANYTHING COLD LIKE ICE CUBES, COLD WATER, AND, YES, EVEN ICE CREAM.>>NO. THAT’S WHY I FEEL BAD. WHEN YOU CAN’T EAT THAT, COME ON.>>I DON’T HAVE A CONDITION.

  1. Interesting. I made a comment an hour ago that I have this condition it is tied to Mast Cell disease and very real. But it appears as if they took it down. Curious?
