Cold Hand Disease

 

Have you noticed that you have cold hands even in mild weather when others around you do not? Do you experience pain in your fingers at cold temperatures? Do you have to wear gloves when handling frozen foods in the grocery store? Have you noticed your hands changing color like white, blue or red? Do you have problems healing minor wounds on your fingertips?

 

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions you might have a cold hand disease that can be treatable.  Most cold hand diseases occur because of blood flow to your hands. In any of these cases the most important step you can take toward better hand health is to be examined by a hand specialist.
