Girl allergic to hot, cold temperatures.

Ten-year-old Jade Ellwanger is literally allergic to the cold. She has an uncommon autoimmune disorder known as heat/cold urticaria, which means her body has difficulty dealing with high and low temperatures. Mike Beitz. Toronto Sun. 02/02/11. (Also see: Urticaria)
