Post Why are my hands so red?

Hello people,

I started noticing that my hands are very red. I haven't changed anything in diet, could it be due to a circulation problem of some sort?

Thanks !

Hello , I am in Toronto, Ontario too.

The condition of your hands would depend on

age, work, diet, excercise and possibly a

sensitivity to household chemicals .

You had best see a doctor at a Walk in Clinic near you.

Have you been washing your hands a lot lately? Many times excess handwashing will cause the redness as it strips off to many oils from the skin. Try using a good moisturizing lotion and see if that helps or use vaseline at bedtime and then put some cotton gloves on for the night so it soaks in. If this doesn't help then see the doc if it continues.
