This is a condition where the toes tends to get really red or even white in the wintertime when the feet are cold, and sometimes this can even happen in the cold of the summertime and you see all this redness to the tip of the toes. This can sometimes happen with people with Raynaud’s. There tends to be pain to the tips of the toes. The best type of treatment is to keep your foot warm. That is not always easy, though, here in Worcester, Massachusetts and so you can sometimes use some hand warmers in your shoes or an extra pair of socks that aren’t going to be too tight, but just be aware of this and try to stay out of the cold as much as possible to make yourself comfortable.
