Probably nothing: There are many causes of cold extremities. You are too young for severe peripheral vascular disease. There are other conditions - reynauds - that can cause transient vascular spasm. Of course the other issue is that you live up north. If it is very bothersome i would suggest you check it out by your primary doc - if all ok - u will have to live with it, or consider moving south. ...Read more
Acrocyanosis: Being cold causes vasoconstriction (tightening down) of the blood vessels in the periphery. This is called acrocyanosis. Hands and feet (and lips too) turning blue is usually from this and rarely a sign of heart disease, but you can check the tongue and inside of the mouth -- if these parts are pink when the hands/feet/lips are blue, then it is unlikely to be related to the heart. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Vascular: That means that blood vessels in the skin become dilated.

Vasospasm: The blood vessels in your hands and feet narrow (vasospasm) causing a reduction in blood flow. The reduced blood to this area causes the area to first turn white.

Use fragrance-free detergents for sensitive skin and avoid fabric softeners (which don't really soften clothes, just add another irritating chemical). Could you have fleas, or other pests, in your house? If not, and you don't get better, see your doc to find out what is going on. ...Read more
