Conditions with symptom: 'clammy palms'
Im 22 and I think raynaulds is something I may have. I have always suffered with freezing ice cold hands, feet, nose! My boyfriend flinches if i touch him because my hands are so cold! They are like this mostly everyday and the only way I can keep warm is if we have the heating on a million degrees which then means he is very hot! I've been to the doctors and I have had thyroid tests (through blood test at dr's) and a diabetes test. Of which both are fine I dont have diabetes. My doctor didnt refer me to anyone else but then I didnt go back in. Another dr mentioned this to me as what it could be. I had to go back to the doctors for something else but I saw the original dr who did the tests, so I mentioned it to her. She said that she didnt think it could be that because my hands are freezing but they are also clammy (which is true). She said with raynaulds you dont get clammy hands. So my hands and feet are freezing ice cold and clammy. Does anyone with raynaulds find their hands clammy and cold? I really want to find an answer to this any advice would be great! or what specialist I may need to see!
yes i suffer with it too it is horrid it has taken my right hand no and i cant get get a feeler they look at my body it is horrid i need help
I was diagnosed with Rynauds 3 years ago, I also get clammy hands and the doctors have said this is because my hands think they are warm when actually they are not.
Hi for the last 6 months my palms of my hands have become very very lined and wrinkly looking i was told it might be atopic dermatitis but not sure the tops of my hands look fine but my palms seem to be getting worse i swear they look worse than my 65yr old nans and im only 16 help!
what can i do about my clammy hands?
Hi, I have been suffering with what my Doctor diagnosed as dermatitis on the palms of my hands. She has prescribed numerous creams, most of which are steriod based. I have been using these creams for over a year now but nothing is working and the condition is worsening. I always protect my hands with gloves when working. I will upload some pics if someone could tell me how me how to do it. The pain is getting really bad now, my skin is getting large cracks and the condition is spreading to my wrists. Please help me as I am very concerned about the fragile skin on my wrists suffering in the same way as my palms. Thank you Sharon.
mine is the same its driving me mad it gets worse when im hot
I have been suffering from the same thing for over 4 months now and I have tried everything from herbal to steroids tablet form and creams. I had got to the point where it was hard to carry on day to day things in life. Now I found tht it was just on my hands it started to spread to my wrist. You should look into the gloves u wear as this can make it worse even though it may not be the cause to the problem. As the heat and sweating makes it worse. I have been on treatment now called Toctino and this has a very high success rate and I'm half way through and it seems to be working already. If its that bad you need to mention u suggle with day to day things and u may b put on this! I hope this helps?
my friends since teenage aged had a hyperhidrosis. two years ago he had undergone surgery to remove both the sweat glands. before surgery, he had a problem on the palms sweat and feet, but after surgery the sweat on the palms have gone and come out a lot of sweat on his chest up to his feet. he had met with a surgeon to talk about the problem of sweat. but the surgeon told him that he could not do anything. This problem has caused my friends suffer from depression and often blame himselves.
I have got warts some big and some very small and they appear to be many in my palms and under the feet. The problem started back in 1998, and I hoped they will disappear on their own but unfortunately they even multiplied over the years. I have seen my doctor and been referred to a dermatologist, but nothing really helped. I was prescribed tablets, creams but they did not help. I was referred to wart specialist but little was done to try to help me as he only scrub them off, but in few days they grow back again. My hands and feet got lumps due to the warts, at times I have to cut them off using a razor blade, and I can only cut the big ones leaving the small one that I have to scrub every week. My skin has become very hard and rough. I recently found out that my 13 year old daughter she's developing the same problem. She has got them in her hand palms as well as under her feet, even though they are small but they appear to be many. Please could you kindly help.
Im 13 and suffer from sweaty palms, it sometimes can become really embarrassing, is there anything that I could do to stop it?
Hey check out these websites... they hold effective ways of treating the sweating. I too suffer from sweaty palms, it's horrible isn't it? xxx http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Hyperhidrosis/Pages/Treatment.aspx http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7939141.stm http://www.hyperhidrosistreatment.net/ Just remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! :D
First I have hitching palms on both hands. An I also felt a little spot on one of my testicle
My palms get really sweaty all the time, if im holding something or someones hand it is terrible. It is really embarrasing. Please help :)
I'm allergic to soaps. I've tried hypo-allergenic ones, unscented, etc. Nothing seems to work. I get a rash daily after showers, and the skin on my palms peels most days. Is there anything I can do to lessen the symptoms?
I have a similar problem but I can use Dove soap but only on my body and not my face. I'm a student nurse and have been told by a pharmacist and tissue viability nurse that creams such as aquaous cream or cetraben can be used to wash yourself. I have been prescribed cetraben and find that its a very good moisturiser. Best suggestion I can give you is to speak to your doctor or practice nurse as they can give you the best advice and treatment. Hope this has helped :)
If you're allergic to all but Dove, you're probably allergic to the additives (perfumes most likely). I'm allergic to dove and even hypo-allergetic as mentioned. Unfortunately, the creams tend to be really expensive.
