Eli5: Why does cold feel wet?

In: Biology

What cold and wet have in common is that they both usually absorb your body heat energy in normal temperature through conduction, therefore making you feel colder in that area.

When you touch metal and water they both absorb your heat for example, and your body might confuse those two similar experiences.

If there is moisture in air it will condensate to water when cold. Depending on temperature differentiate between air and the cold thing this can result to “wet feeling” to dew on your soda can.
