In brief: Raynauds
Smoking, autoimmune disease and repetitive trauma or vibration to the fingers will all make it worse.
If onset is after 40 years old there may be an underlyig disease so get checked out. Avoid cold to hands, stop smoking and avoid certain drugs, your doctor will know which. There are some medications that may help as well so see a doctor for treatment.
