Why should we protect our hands in winter?

The problem of freezing hands in winter makes many people feel worried and sad. Not to mention the unsightly and uncomfortable, but even more lightly manifested as swelling and itching. In severe cases, cracks and ulcers may occur. In the case of cold hands, the degree of injury can be divided into the following three degrees: it once appeared purple or blue, accompanied by swelling, and itching and pain will appear when it is warm. The second degree is the condition of severe freezing, the tissue is damaged, there will be blisters on the basis of erythema, and there will even be fluid leakage after the blister is broken. The third degree is the most serious, and necrosis caused by freezing leads to the formation of ulcers.

In cold weather, keeping warm is the most important thing. For cold hands, it is necessary to choose comfortable and warm gloves. Of course, remember that the gloves should not be too tight, otherwise it is not conducive to blood circulation.


2. Frequently massage hands and feet

When massaging the palm of the foot, rub the palm of your hand quickly until it feels hot. Often such massaging of hands and feet has a good effect on improving the microcirculation of the end blood vessels and promoting blood circulation.

3. Maintain a regular diet

In addition to supplementing the vitamins needed by the body, eat more high-protein and high-calorie foods such as nuts, eggs, chocolate, and avoid the intake of raw and cold foods. Strengthen body heat through food to resist the invasion of the outside cold.

4. Do exercises frequently
