If cause is "cured": Other than treating the underlying condition(s) causing raynaud's symptoms, avoiding emotional stress, keeping warm, not smoking, and avoiding caffeine, some medications can help. Nifedipine, diltiazem, losartan, and prazosin have been used in patients with raynaud's phenomenon, to block vasospasm and/or relax vessels so they can dilate to let more blood flow through them.

No: Raynaud's is a group of symptoms, not a real disease itself, in that there is a single cause. The best management is to have a complete physical exam and blood tests looking for a cause.

Is there a cure that works for raynaud`s syndrome?

Doubtful: Typically i would say there is no cure for raynauds. The one instance would be if smoking causes the symptoms of raynauds (which it can), and if you quit smoking it could go away. However, most patients with raynauds require treatment to reduce the symptoms of the condition. Avoiding direct contact with cold objects for example could reduce the symptoms. Medications can be quite helpful.
