In brief: Amlodipine

Reynaud's disease is caused by an autoimmune condition where you have spasms of the vessels of fingers and toes.
It can be treated by a family of medications called calcium channel blockers, namely amlodipine. Rheumatologists also specialize in the entire fa, ily of diseases to which raynaud's belong to and would be the specialist of choice. Keeping extremities warm also helps.

In brief: Avoid cold temp

There are no long term treatments for raynauds.
Avoid cool temperatures when possible. There have been reports of nitroglycerine paste and calcium channel blockers to increase blood flow to the fingers.
