Are there any long term effects from taking xeloda for hand foot syndrome?

Usually not

Hand
Redness, numbness, desquamation, tenderness and pain, discoloration, nail changes are all seen with Palmar-Plantar Erythrodysesthesia (Hand-foot Syndrome). Most of these changes will resolve with time after stopping the capecitabine (Xeloda). There can be some chronic changes that are not usually severe- especially the discoloration and maybe occass some numbness.

Do all babies who are exposed to hand, foot and mouth syndrome always get sick?

No

Hand_foot_mouth_disease
While this is a contagious illness, not all infants will contract it when they are exposed. The longer a baby is in close contact with an ill child the greater the likelihood of becoming infected. This illness is easily spread by respiratory droplets from nasal and oral secrections. Similar symptoms may begin in 48-72 hrs after exposure.

The incubation period from exposure to illness for Coxsackie virus infection (hand, foot and mouth) is 3-6 days. It is contagious, especially for infants and toddlers. Usual symptoms are fever, irritability and sore throat. Blisters on the hands and feet can occur, but often do not. See your baby's doctor for a diagnosis.

Hand and feet always cold, do I have raynaud syndrome?

Cold not = to blue

Hand
Raynaud's is characterized by color changes due to spasm of the blood vessels. Blanching is usually the first change, followed by cyanosis (blue), and then red when the spasm relaxes, and then back to normal skin color. Not everyone with Raynauds has all three color changes. If your hands are not turning blue, I think it is very unlikely that you have Raynauds.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

I have Raynaud's syndrome. How can I keep my hands and feet warm?

Always plan ahead

Extremity-lower-foot
Cold temperatures are a main cause of Raynaud's phenomenon, so cold weather can trigger symptoms. If a person has only mild symptoms, he can keep his hands, feet, face, and ears warm with well-insulated clothing. The newest gadgets (such as heated gloves and heated socks) from winter sports stores may help. Using portable heaters, pre-warming the car, keeping dry, etc..., are helpful ideas.
