Purple Line Cuticle Nail
Is it normal for half of finger nails to turn purple near the cuticle, when cold, or is this reynaud's?
Possible Reynaud's: Reynaud's phenomenon is a circulation problem that can cause the nails of the fingers and feet to change colors, the feeling of them being cold, as well as accompanying numbness or tingling upon rewarming. With exposure to cold temperature, classically the nails will turn white, then blue/purple with numbness, and then red with possible swelling and throbbing as the circulation improves. ...Read more

I had a bad kitchen accident with extremely hot cooking oil. It exploded and spilled on my hand and I have a bad purple redish scar. Anything i can do?
Burn scar treatment: If the burn has healed then its a matter of scar management. Sun protection with 30+ spf, scar massage, stretching, silicone based scar creams/sheeting, & possibly fractional laser treatments may help. If it involves any joints you should be followed by a doctor & hand therapist to avoid scars that limit joint movement (contracture). If it is not healed you should be seen by a doctor as well. ...Read more
