Raynaud's?: You can take Niacin no flush capsules. See if nicotine or caffeine productives may be causing this problem. Most important to determine any underlying organic causes such as vasospastic disorders or liver disorders, etc.

They change color?: Do they change color? Are they cold to touch? The remedy is the correct diagnosis. If you smoke - stop. Dress warmly as central warmth can help improve extremity warmth. When you are evaluated you will be checked for systemic problems like thyroid disease, poor vascular function. Once you are tested including an examination, lab and imaging then a clear diagnosis can help this.
