    Is there any treatment? My fingers don’t get white or blue; some just get really red and the skin gets hard.

    nbm, it’s hard to tell from your brief description exactly what’s causing your symptoms. Have you been diagnosed with Raynaud’s? If so, your treating physician can prescribe one of a number of medications that can reduce the frequency and/or severity of attacks; most commonly prescribed are drugs known as calcium channel blockers, including nifedipine and amlodipine. There are also treatments for digital ulcers caused by Raynaud’s, including intravenous infusion of iloprost.

    Thank you. My rheumatologist said that since my fingers are not blue or white the calcium channel blockers won’t be effective. I was looking for a non-medical suggestion.
