What does it mean when your fingers are always cold and wounds on them are slow to heal?

In brief: Cold fingers

You really should see a clinician to look at your hands.
There is a large circle of patients who have a sensation of cold extremities; there are also a large circle of patients with cuts on their fingers from lack of moisture and minor injuries. Only a small group of patients have a rare condition called raynaud's that requires careful attention. This requires a physical examination.

In addition to Dr. Bolhack's answer there are several other vasculitis conditions that cause these symptoms and require Rheumatology to hep diagnose and medications to control .

Sounds like worse case of raynaud's. Should see a rheumatologist.
