I just stared a new job at a Salmon factory. It's really cold

Customer Question

I just stared a new job at a Salmon factory. It's really cold and anytime I go to work I get a painful rash on my Feet, Hands, Legs, Arms and Knee Caps. It itches and it Burns. Only when I am exposed to cold temperatures. I have never been diagnosed with a condition yet but do see my health care provider tomorrow. Any ideas on what this might be?
