Treatment of Raynaud’s Disease

Raynaud’s can be managed by following these at-home treatments.

While Raynaud’s disease is not typically dangerous, in rare cases, it can become serious, restrict the blood supply to the feet and hands, and cause skin sores or tissue damage.

Patients with a medical history of autoimmune diseases and diabetes are prone to Raynaud’s, so visit your podiatrist as early as possible to save your limbs from damage.
