Could be..: It's possible it's a bug bite- do you remember being bit? More likely you have some kind of infection if it is oozing. If it is painful, red, warm to touch it is most likely a skin infection. Oozing white or yellowish liquid also points to infection. Go have your doctor take a look at it and determine what treatment you need.

Warm water: Slowly warm them up in warm water, move the fingers, and try wearing gloves if it is cold outside. Get evaluated by your physician as it could be signs of poor circulation. Have your circulation evaluated to prevent potential complications.

Proper Warmup: I treat a lot of musicians. Cold hands are a common problem, with several possible causes. The best treatment is a proper warmup before beginning to play. You should do 5-10 minutes of gentle exercise using big muscles prior to sitting down to practice. This can be walking up & down steps, squats, sit-ups, jumping jacks. Don't get all sweaty, but get your pulse rate up.
