Im pretty sure I have Raynauds. The thing is I live in Australia, and while I live further south where we do actually get winter, its still pretty mild (this morning was unusually cold at 3 or 4 degrees C, daytime is about 13-18 C, so not freezing by any means). So I need some good gloves but that aren’t too thick – I find super warm gloves can make me too hot as its not really too cold, often im not feeling cold at all but my hands are purple and cold to the touch. Does anyone know of some thin yet warm gloves that might help with this?July 10, 2013 at 8:44 am #4154
Welcome to the forum, FrancesL.
I don’t know of specific brand names, but there are glove liners and cosmetic cotton gloves you may want to consider. The cosmetic kind are usually thin white cotton that are found at beauty supply stores (or on-line) and are used to keep lotion on your hands during sleep, but they work well for when just a little warmth is needed along with allowing for dexterity.July 12, 2013 at 11:48 am #4155
If you feel like spending a bit more money you might consider FAR infrared gloves. I bought a pair from the link below and think they’re slightly helpful. But buy a size larger than you think. Even the XLs are a bit small for me, although I’m male and have fairly large hands. There are other vendors and brands out there, this is just the one I used:October 30, 2013 at 3:20 pm #4438
I also have a pair of those far infrared therapy gloves. I bought them for work. My hands and fingers get cold while on the computer all day. They warm up pretty quickly after putting them on.
The ones I purchased were the half finger gloves. Here’s a picture
I don’t have the exact link to the ones I bought but you can find the on their website http://www.veturotherapy.comNovember 1, 2013 at 9:16 am #4440
Thanks for the tip, Kittens!December 31, 2013 at 9:55 pm #4655
I’m new to this forum but pretty sure I have Raynauds too. My symptoms are numbness and white fingertips, in the cold, usually when driving. I have a pair of thick, insulated gloves that I thought would be good, until I realized they were constricting the circulation in my fingers. I haven’t found any glove liners that are small enough. I’ve tried the hand warmers, but hard to use while driving. I wanted to try the FAR/FIR therapy gloves, but didn’t know if they would work. I’m glad someone here has had success with these gloves.
I don’t think the half finger gloves would be good for me since my problem with the numbness is in my fingertips, yet my hands tend to be cold quite often too.
The FIR Heals website http://www.firheals.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=85&product_id=50e recommends wearing the gloves at night. Has anyone tried this?
