Cold hands in winter

Common Questions and Answers about Cold hands in winter


Avatar n tn I too have peeling palms that leads to cracking and some times bleeding only when autumn comes around. I spent a year in the tropics and for the first time in 20 years, I went an entire winter without the problem. The pattern of peeling is incredibly symmetric and stops precisely where the skin begins to have hair follicles. I am 29 years old and for as long as I can remember, around October in the north east of the U.S.
Avatar n tn I am writing this for my sister. In the winter she gets extremely cold hands and feet and her fingernails turn purple. She is not normally that cold to touch, as much as she feels cold herself. It actually causes pain. It leaves in the summer but in the winter its pretty bad, socks doesn't help, etc. She is only 21, so I was just wondering everyones take on it. She hasn't went to the doc yet...
Avatar n tn Can happen in the summer if you're in air conditioning. Anytime your hands and feet get cold. Swimming too.
Avatar m tn So i am not comfortable in both situations.It only happens to me in winter .I know hands and feet get cold in winter but my problem is severe. 1-Can anyone one please tell me the reason for it ? 2-Whats the solution? Note: I have slightly low blood pressure but its normal for me.
Avatar f tn My outer body gets way too hot and I can feel the heat myself and am too hot even in winter and it keeps me awake and i'm even hot with the radiator off, no pajamas, window open and the thinnest feather quilt (feathers cooler then synthetic) and my hands and feet are roasting but the only part of me that can sweat is my chest, back, armpits and hands. Other people feel the heat coming off me and my dad worries about it.
Avatar n tn I just had to comment on this one. I don't know if you have what I am going to describe, but it is worth looking into. Years ago, when I moved from Hawaii to Kansas City, the cold weather almost killed me (literally). I developed Raynauds phenomenon and shortly there after - Erythromelalgia. If you're not familiar with these - they are both vaso-spastic disorders.
Avatar f tn I was wondering. My hands are in a lot if pain since winter hit. Swollen, painful and stiff. Other joint pain and weakness too. But right now my hands and wrist are the worst. I can't open my water bottle and so on. A friend thinks I have RA.
Avatar n tn had a cold or flu 3 times in da last 2 or so months should i go see my doc n is there anything they can really do
Avatar n tn Hi, I also get extremely cold as well. I'm 16. In the winter my fingers swell up to 1 inch big and they turn bluish purple. This could be because your daughter has bad circulation- I do, or it could be a reaction to certain weather types of food. I always go purple in winter or the cold.
Avatar f tn When my hands are exposed to the cold they turn red and become swollen, sore and itchy. It's very much like an allergic reaction. In fact, the first time this happened I thought it was a reaction to some soap I had used. I was outside without gloves in 34 degree weather this morning for about 20 minutes. My hands had a reaction after about 10 minutes. I've always had cold hands and feet, but this is only the second time I've had this sort of reaction.
Avatar m tn m pretty normal. but once I go out(where the temperature will be in minus) I get rashes only in hands which is not covered, rest of my body will be covered with jackets and winter shoes. so which made me to think. whether this rash is because of the climatic change (this sounds really weird). coz i havn't felt like this before. please me why I fell like this, what will be cause for this kind of rashes?. appreciate your help!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn Hello. I am a 38 year old female. For the past about 5 years now I have expereinced the following issue that seems to be getting worse. I suffer from severe itchy and painful hand and feet whenever they are exposed to cold. There is no spots, blistersor color change, but they are extremely painful and extremely itchy. I can't so much as carry something cold in my hands, walk on tile floor barefoot for even a few seconds before itch starts.
Avatar f tn I did see a woman in the fall who had been out in the cold and her hands did change color. The weirdest thing I ever saw. She was not on meds. (eeek!!) Didn't want to be on meds either, seemed to think it was a non-event. She would rub her hands for a while and that was that. Long story short: I am starting to think I don't have Reynaud's. How is it diagnosed? Could it be that my on-again, off-again hyper-sensitivity to cold is part of an MS package?
Avatar n tn hello...please both hands fom shoulder to fingers shiver, it happens even in summer at times,but know its winter so its occuring now and then...sometimes it takes 2-3 hrs to come to normal temp. i always wear 2 sweaters,one thermal suit,socks,gloves etc to keep it warm...iam unable to understand why its happening....please advice.
20787488 tn?1517914249 Cold and flu are both in season now. Both are transferred in the same way. Usually droplets. This means that if you see someone coughing or sneezing, stay away from them as what is spewing out of their mouth or nose could and probably does contain cold or flu virus. They should try to stay home for other's protection as you are contagious for about a week. But if out, they should cough into elbow and same for sneezes or cover with something when sneezing or coughing.
1125742 tn?1259722039 I developed a numbness in the big toe, and adjacent areas, on my right foot after moving from a fairly moderate climate to a colder climate in the northwest. When it is cold, and 35 degrees is cold, the numbness comes - to the bone - and the toe is white liked overcooked pork, and cold to the touch. I went to a doctor and was diagnosed with Reynaud's Syndrome (I think that's how you spell it).
Avatar n tn I used to always be cold while others were warm, have cold feet all night, cold hands always, I take only these supplements and I am always the perfect temperature. Actually taking these tools the body needs, I feel darn well great most of the time, I'm 47.
Avatar n tn During the winter time when I was 13, my hands swelled up. During that first winter, my hands would swell and patches on my feet would swell everytime they were exposed to the cold. My hands and feet have not swollen since that first winter. Every winter and spring since then, my hands develop a rash across my knuckles. The rash is very dry, scaly, and itchy. My hands will bleed and dirt will settle into the rash and the rash scars my hands. My fingers become flushed red.
Avatar f tn I'm 16 weeks 2day and I'm sick for the second time with a cold. This winter is going to suck. You'd think with all the water and vitamins I'm taking I'd be invincible to cold and flu season!
547181 tn?1255146506 hi all. i am svr. After tx i always have cold palms and feet especially in winter and feel more cold than others while sometimes couldn't resist cold weather. I am told by some one that Cod Liver Oil tablets is very beneficial for this problem. please share your experiences/information abt cod liver oil whether this can do something with problem or it has any disadvantages etc.
Avatar f tn Hey guys I'm 17 weeks pregnant and I have very itchy, swollen hands and my joints are sore.  Is anyone else experiencing or have experienced this.
Avatar f tn My feet and hands are usually extremely cold during night and day, doesn't matter if it's winter or summer. But I realised that during my pregnancy, it's the other way around. My feet and hands are always warm and even keeping my tummy warm and roasty, it tends to be cold.
Avatar f tn The only symptom that worsens for me in winter is the numbness / disordered sensation in my limbs, especially my left hand. The sensations intensify and turn my hand into a useless, clumsy stump. It takes a few hours to thaw out and feel like my usual normal (still abnormal but not as bad). It was worst when cleaning ice and snow off my car in minus 40 Celsius weather in northern Alberta. Now that I'm in Calgary, and have a garage :) , I expect not to suffer quite so much.
