Meet the mum-of-three forced to spend winter inside because she’s fatally allergic to the cold.
Kelly Pouw, 26, from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, initially thought the raised spots on her thighs four-years-ago were heat rash before discovering her unusual reaction to anything cold.
She has cold-induced urticaria, a condition that means anything chilly from cold air to snow can cause an allergic reaction.
Anything cold touches her skin causes itchy red hives to appear that can grow up to the size of an ‘apple’ causing extreme discomfort as well as risking her throat and tongue swelling-up.
