My hands are weird (always blue?)
 
My hands are serioustly weird, if i go out walking the dog my hands go blue and when I press on them I get white marks where i just pressed for ages. Its starting to work me a wee bit now. Could it be because I have warts on my hands?

Thanks :eek:

my friends hands go purpley/blue in the cold, maybe its just the cold? maybe bad circulation? try massaging them.

A woman I used to work with had hands that were always blue/purple. It turned out that she had bad circulation/arythmia (sp.?). Book an appt with your doctor to have it checked out.

Good luck. :)

I did go to the blood donors a week or so ago and they mentioned that they couldnt take any of my blood because my veins were really thin. Could this be the problem? What exactly could the doctor do to make them normal?

You could be suffering from a disorder called Raynauds. This is prone to turn your hands blue and then go back to normal colour. Ask your Doctor whether he or she thinks this could be it. I have Raynauds myself, and my hands turn blue all the time, and go icy cold. Do yours?

Yeah, they do go very cold can get quite uncomfortable to. Is there a cure of some sort for it?
