Have red spots, itch, tight knuckles when hand, toes get cold. Allergic reaction or circulation problem?

Red spots, itchiness, tightness on knuckles, occur when hands get cold, similar occurrence on toes. What is the cause?

I have Red spots on my knuckles that feel tight and itchy. They only come out when my hands get very cold or when I switch from a warm temperature to a cold temperature. When I press down on them you can quickly see my finger print and it disappears. I also sometimes get the same reaction to the toes on my feet . Could it be an allergic reaction or a circulation problem? Could it be Hives or Eczema?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. The red spots which itch and tighten your knuckles when hand toes get cold are related to your allergies. I also think that you might not have a circulation problem. I feel like you should avoid the allergen which is the cold or warm temperature changes. I believe that you do not have hives or eczema, you just have an allergic reaction. Please avoid the allergen and distract yourself from it. Loratidine is useful in allergies as is levocetrizine and monteleukast. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
