What Does It Mean When A Babys Hands And Feet Turn Purple
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 more

Further eval needed: Raynauds syndrome is a vascular response, in which, there is constriction of blood vessel, as a response to certain stimuli, not only cold exposure, but also, certain chemical and or sustained vibration, among other things. It could occur as an isolated finding or associated to an underlying connective tissue disorder. Joint hyper mobility or laxity of joints bears no relationship to Raynauds ...Read more
Not at all: Central cyanosis (blue all over) makes us worry about problems oxygenating the blood & could represent a lung problem or a shunt (extra connection) in the heart that might let blood cross from right to left & avoid the lungs. Peripheral cyanosis (blue hands, feet, lips, etc.) merely reflects sluggish blood flow through these peripheral capillaries. Very common in cold children, & not dangerous. ...Read more
@ what age does DHA need 2 be introduced into child's diet? He is 4 months old. Also his feet & hands a little purple, is this bcause he is cold?
