A Cold Surprise

What is going on in this photo?

Moderator's Response
Cold hypersensitivity is a vascular reaction that is seen in response to cold. This is a local response seen only at the site of application. The skin is marked by raised patches that can either be whiter or redder than the surrounding skin. The problem will resolve with rewarming but may be accompanied by significant itching.
