My fingers swell up in hot weather, is this something to be concerned about?

Not usually: Increased temperature alone can explain swelling. The blood vessels in the skin dilate so that we can radiate away the heat from out core. Smoking can also be the sign of a disease, allergy or reaction to medication/ Additional history and examination can help. Be certain to ask your doctor.
