A 26-year-old female asked:

Possible: You may have raynaud's as well, which would not be uncommon with lupus. Raynaud's is a condition that is associated with spasm of the small arteries in the fingers and toes, causing color changes (red, white and blue). Usually associated with cold temperatures or stressful events, raynaud's responds to warmth and decreasing stress. If not better, please see a rheumatologist.

Superficial clot?: This might be a superficial thrombophlebitis, which in essence is a clot, but not a dangerous one. Bluish discoloration, a thickened vein that might be tender, localized swelling and tenderness are usually seen with these clots; warm compresses to the area, elevation and anti-inflammatory medications help; if not better in 2-3 days, seek medical advice.

More profound colors: Raynaud's is usually a benign condition, unless you are a smoker. If you smoke, you may begin to develop restrictions of blood flow, which together with the spasm associated with raynaud's, might lead to tissue loss, though this is uncommon. Profound color changes can occur but these usually normalize; if they don't, please see a vascular surgeon.
