I think I have a strange kind of allergy; once when I got out of the swimming pool, my skin developed hives. I started avoiding that specific pool because I suspected the quality of water, but those hives appeared even at the other pools… Is it possible to be allergic to the cold? I want to ask you before I consult the specialist for the allergies.

It is possible that you have a basically harmless aspect of the allergy called cold urticaria. The cause of your reaction – which, luckily, is not as serious as hard breathing – is the release of histamines in touch with the cold air or water. Treatment of cold urticaria involves avoiding the cold, and taking prescribed antihistamines.
Until you visit your doctor, I recommend you to avoid swimming in the cold water and exposing to the cold air.
