How to recognize and what to do if the baby is allergic to cold?
Walking in the fresh air is very important for a child at any age and their duration should not depend on the season and weather conditions. Of course, if the street is very cold, then a sensitive children’s body should not be subjected to such a test, it is better to find a reasonable alternative. But when the frost is not strong, and the winter sun pleases with its presence and wants to go for a walk, even parents will get a lot of pleasant emotions from such pastime.

For complete recovery, it is necessary to find the cause, which leads to a decrease in the immunity of the child (chronic diseases or the presence of parasites in the intestine).
In order to avoid unpleasant manifestations of cold allergies, it is worthwhile to worry about its prevention in advance. The main measure of prophylaxis is limiting the child's stay on the street in severe frosts. For example, children under one year of age are generally not advised to be away from home if the temperature has dropped below 15 degrees below zero. There are other recommendations:
