Are Your Toes Ready For Winter?

Many people get this winter burden. By the interaction of the cold, the skin starts to show in some places red swellings. These are normally harmless, but can be very itchy and painful. Women are more sensitive than men for this condition.The disorder occurs during cold and wet periods, so especially during the winter.

My feet don't sweat in the summer when I am wearing socks and sneakers or socks in regular dress shoes. Sometimes the pain hurts to walk when I put weight on it.

Stress or changes in temperature can trigger vasospasms, which usually don’t lead to other health concerns. Raynaud’s may also be related to rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren’s disease, or thyroid problems.

If your toes are always cold, one reason could be poor blood flow -- a circulatory problem sometimes linked to smoking, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
