Yes, I had black spots and broken skin on my fingers that caused the pain. I did try to keep my fingers warm by using hand warmers, wear special gloves and soaking in warm water. When I started to have broken skin and when the pain was unbearable I used Orajel to numb the pain. I had sleepless nights due to the pain. I will always try to keep my hands warm. Thanks for your advice.
