Why Do My Fingers Turn White?

Answer

Your fingers turn white because you may be suffering from a condition called Raynaud's disease. This condition arises from when the arteries of the small fingers are highly reactive to cold temperatures and go into spasms. The arteries then shrink and the fingers turn white. This condition can be treated by use of gloves and antispasmodic medications.
