Hi How long has this been going on?

OK Winfred. Just to check here--your doctor has no idea what the problem is? Have you had any medications prescribed for it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No medication just said it was Reynard disease but my hands go neither white or blue there has been inflammation show up in a blood sample once but it was not followed up.

OK Winifred--and we can continue after this if you'd like. This sounds like a condition called cold urticaria and it may also be related to Raynaud's. I would have you see a rheumatologist for a full evaluation for autoimmune disorders and antihistamines like Claritin, Allegra, or Zyrtec, or more specific medications like methotrexate or Humira may well get rid of your symptoms
