Many of us experience cold hands and feet when the temperature drops. But Raynaud’s disease is different. It is a whole other level of discomfort and struggle. If you want to really understand hard it is to live with Raynaud’s disease, take a look at this article, which describes what people who suffer from Raynaud’s go through.
Raynaud’s disease is a medical condition that can cause discomfort as the blood flow to your fingers and toes decreases. When this happens, you’ll notice your fingers or toes change colour and they start feeling cold and numb in response to cold temperatures or emotional stress.
The general view is that the best self-treatment for Raynaud’s is to stay warm. Here are some tips for how to do it:
1. Layering & Stick-on Heat Pads
2. Gloves & Small Hand Warmers
3. Socks & Stick-on Toe Warmers
With the exception of our Hand Warmers, which can be held in the hand directly, we strongly advise against sticking Hotteeze Regular or Hotteeze For Feet directly to your skin. It is true that there are some heat pads on the market that can be used in this way, but they tend to have a lower maximum temperature and shorter duration. Our heat pads provide targeted heat and stay above 50 degrees Celsius and maintain their temperature for hours. So to derive maximum benefit from the comforting heat and to avoid a low-temperature burn, always keep a thin, tight layer of clothing between the pad and your skin.
