'Pruned ' fingertips....
« on: March 23, 2014, 04:33:41 pm »
.... what's that all about then?
For the last, I don't know - three or four weeks, the fingertips of both hands look like I've been sitting in the bath too long, they're also subjected to mild pins & needles.
It's not painful, just mildly irritating and, errr..... weird.
Any idea what that might be about?

TIA

Have your toes gone the same way?

No, just my fingers.

Sorry to disappoint. It's part of my cunning ploy to use an 'interesting' subject header in the hope of getting more hits and eliciting more replies  :)

Jurek, just search for "wrinkled fingertips" and you'll find some possibilities.  Good luck!

A mate/colleague has it - don't think it causes him too much of a problem on the whole, but it's a bit more trouble on the motorbike.

No.
I have two friends who suffer with Reynauds.
I definitely do not have that.
My fingertips aren't wrinkly all the time - just at certain times of day, and in varying degrees.
I'm not sure what that correlates with, and I don't seem to be able to induce the wrinkly-ness by anything that I do  ???

IME, reynauds doesn't produce wrinkly fingers. My experience is limited.

The photo on Henshaw's link is exactly what my friend's fingies look like when subjected to cold that wouldn't affect most of us.
