What causes hands to turn cold and turn red?

I am a freshman in college, and I have extremely cold hands most of the time that turn bright red with stress or cold. The redness cuts off at my wrists( I think this is called the glove effect ). I have never really worried about red hands before until about a year ago when they started getting really really bad. In the past I have had some issues with my hands turning red when I would give presentations, but most of the time they were normal. Now I am upset because my condition has worsened, and they are red all the time. I hate this. Help me!

Hello,

It could be due vasospasm and vasodilation. Get color doppler test done.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
