Raynaud’s phenomenon is a blood circulation disorder that is aggravated by exposure to cold. The disease most often affects extremities such as the fingers and toes (and less commonly the nose, lips and earlobes). The affected areas suddenly become white, cold to the touch and in some cases numb because of decreased blood flow. Although Raynaud’s phenomenon is not life threatening, severe cases may cause disability and force workers to leave their jobs. It could also be the first sign of another serious illness, so make an appointment with your medical professional as soon as possible!
