3 doctors agree

In brief: Fabry disease

Symptoms usually begin during childhood or adolescence and include burning sensations in the hands that gets worse with exercise and hot weather and small, non-cancerous, raised reddish-purple blemishes on the skin.
Lipid storage may lead to impaired arterial circulation and increased risk of heart attack or stroke. More at: http://www.Ninds.Nih.Gov/disorders/fabrys/fabrys.Htm.
