Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
How can I help?
No problem, could you show me a photo of this please?
No worries, this therefore can mean a lot of things, but nothing concerning. Were there any skin changes when you had this like dry skin? or were your hands painful?
The most common cause to red hands is inflammation of the skin. Red hands wouldn't be due to problematic blood flow, this would cause pale hands, like what can appear in Raynauds.
If it has settled this is reassuring. I would therefore raise this if it happens again.
No, if they were not painful, I do not think it would be this at all.
As you say in theory it could be a differential, however without pain this seems unlikely to me.
That is my pleasure, do let me know if it returns.
A deficiency is more likely if you have a persistent or recurrent issue.
Sorry for my delay, this doesn't look anything concerning. I would suggest you use a regular emollient, and buy something like Dermal to wash you hands with as a soap substitute.
Thanks, ***** ***** what you mean, I would still do the same.
Not at all.
Because what you are asking is rare, your hands also so no signs of vascular disease.
When you see hundreds of patients per week, you get to know what is worrying and what isn't.
That is my pleasure, vascular implies a problem with blood flow.
A peripheral neuropathy is a chronic nerve issue, this is not that.
Palmar erythema as it says, only effects the palms.
Not a problem at all. I had indeed lost my connection for a few hours. Take care.
