Why Is My Nose Always Cold?


Are your hands, feet and nose always cold?

If you are experiencing a cold climate, your extremities will be the first parts of your body to feel cold, and are also the most prone to frostbite. If cold weather is not the explanation, it may be due to poor circulation, or it may be a symptom of a more serious disorder. Poor circulation can be a symptom of high blood pressure, underactive thyroid gland, and anemia, and people suffering from these conditions may feel colder than normal. Smoking can also constrict the blood vessels and lead to poor circulation. Raynaud's Syndrome, commonly found in people who have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, is a condition in which the blood vessels constrict, causing insufficient blood flow to the extremities. Raynaud's can also cause pain in those areas and can turn the skin blue.

Check with your doctor if you are experiencing the unexplained feeling of cold in your extremities, so you can determine the best way to treat it.
