    How come my hands turn purple-ish in the cold?

    When ever I'm cold in about 60F, my hands are really red with blotchy white spots and my knuckles turn very dark purple. I am wondering if this is something to be concerned with. My family does also have poor circulation, but I have never had an issue with my circulation.

    I have same problem with the smallest toe on each foot.
    It only happens when my feet are cold and the small toes turn real purple.
    May be its a circulation problem,

    Definitely sounds like Raynaud's. Same thing happens to me.
