In brief: Fingers

Could be due to raynaud's after being exposed to cold temperature.

In brief: Erythromelalgia?

There is a relatively rare condition known as erythromelalgia in which the hands or feet recurrently become very red and painful with a burning sensation.
It can be familial or sporadic. In some cases, it is caused by mutations in the scn9a gene which makes a protein involved in moving sodium through the cell membrane.See your doc who may refer you to be seen by a rheumatologist or neurologist.
