Those are all: Symptoms of normal pregnancy. Though I would definitely keep that appointment -- even if for peace of mind. God knows you have enough problems to worry about without having to worry about the baby itself. Enjoy the ride and congratulations. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

My daughter gets blue hands and blue feet when she gets cold is that raunauds?

Yes: Raynaud's syndrome (or blanching of the limbs) is exactly what you describe. However this is not a disease--it is a syndrome which can be caused by multiple disorders. This needs evaluation by a doctor.

Acrocyanosis: The vascular systems of young children are notoriously hyper reactive. Pallor or blueness results from rapid shunting of blood toward the vital organs when the body is chilled. As long as there is no associated blueness of the lips and tongue, this is likely nothing of concern.

What do you suggest if my granddaughter has blue hands and feet when she is in the bath?

Probably normal: It can be normal for an infant to do this if they are cold. If her lips are not blue, then she's probably fine. I'd have your daughter discuss it with their pediatrician.

Raynaud's Phenomenon: The symptoms you describe are suggestive of Raynaud's Phenomenon. This can be Primary or Secondary. Meaning, if secondary, it may be related to other conditions such as certain types of arthritis and even SLE (Lupus). Some medications can also contribute to this. It is best to see your Primary physician or a HealthTap Consultant to delineate further care. Wish you well!

Get checked out: Body makes fever by decreasing blood flow to skin and thus keeps the heat in the body. So the blue hands/feet/nose may jsut be a result of this movement of blood flow away form skin. However, when you start talking about blue lips, and certianly if inside of mouth (ie tongue...) is bluish, this is emergency and needs to get checked out right away.

1st degree burn: If you have had time to write on healthtap without blistering it is unlikely it will do so. It is unlikely to scar either even though mild a large hand burn should still be checked cool compresses or aveno should make it feel better take antiinflammatories like tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil to help w oth pain.
