Hi everyone, sry but I didn't knw where else to put it but here.

Anyway my upper body especially my back,face, and hair always starts itching really really annoyingly everytime I go from a cold place to a hot or warm room. And since I live in a cold location it happens everytime I go outside and enter to a room. The itching only lasts for about five minutes but I really hate it. I know for sure its not lice or any bugs crawling on me.

I think you have hives. I also have this problem. It's just an allergy to temperature and there's really nothing you can do about it than take an allergy medication.
