My toddler gets red palms with white spots /splotches.?

Capillary cirulation: The autonomic (automatic) nervous system controls circulation by a "dilate/constrict" balance. This suggests that lower brain controls are unevenly distributed. Depending on whether there are other symptoms (if I am right there always are) a high sugar diet and/or cow's milk would do this.

Maybe or not: May be normal for you. May be related to altered metabolism of hormones, like estrogen. Can be seen with liver disease, pregnancy, birth control pill use, other causes. Any question-see your doc.

I've always had red palms but when I got preg my finger tips stayed red and still are a year later what is this??

I've always had red palms but when I got preg my finger tips stayed red and still are a year later what is this??

Hard to be exact: Red palms could be a sign of polycythemia, that is elevated hematocrit hemoglobin red cells and could be a reactive process, ie oxygenation issue etc or primary. Erythroderma from drugs or primary, are also causes but often redness is seen elsewhere or all over skin. Your year old post delivery with residual redness of fingers suggest the first possibility. To be sure, get a CBC and visit MDs

Maybe: There are various conditions associated. Smoking may be one. Red palms with liver disease is due to increased estrogen. There are many other causes. Your DR can evaluate you to see if it means something significant. You may never arrive at a satisfactory explanation. Do you have PCOS? Other hormone abnormality?

I have had red tingling palms for over a year. No other symptoms of liver disease and have stopped drinking alcohol (for over a year). Do the red palms mean I have liver disease. I have even a regular user of alcohol for several years?

Best you talk with: Your own doctor. There are a number of things that cause palmar erythema or red palms, one of the most common is alcoholism. In your case there are many possibilities and best to be sorted out in person by a doc familiar with your history, and you probably need some tests to examine you current thyroid levels not just TSH, amongst other things. Hope you get to the bottom of this soon! Best wishes!

I have very red palms, numbness&tingling in fingers & toes with sharp pains shooting up arms & legs. My hands fall asleep& I have to shake them.

Be seen: I would not hesitate to be seen. There may be more than one condition contributing, or they may all be stemming from one systemic condition. A nerve conduction test would probably be helpful in addition to being seen and examined.
