Cold fingers, toes, and hives

For the past couple of months I've noted my finger and feet are always cold. Lately, I've noticed that when it gets really bad (when they're very cold) I develop hives on my ankles. I have cold urticaria, which is an allergy to the cold, but i'm pretty sure it's only external stimuli, not internal.
Could this be a blood circulation problem or something else?
Thank you.

The hives on your ankles are related to cold urtica.  You can google this.  Cool fingers and toes, even blue or reddish colored (Raynaud's Phenomenon) are also part of it.

A better understanding of your cold urticaria would be helpful.
