This is a disorder that will impact the arteries that work to supply the blood that your skin needs in both your hands and your feet. The small arteries work hard to bring nutrients and oxygen to your extremities. However, when there are spasms here, it can block the flow of blood which will lead to a lack of oxygen. This can change the color of your skin to a more dark blue or even purple color, that is known as cyanosis.
While this is a condition that is normally benign, it can be an indicator that there is some sort of other medical issue that is looming within the body. Some of the other conditions that you need to look out for include those that involve the connective tissue or cardiovascular system. In general, there will be more women than men who are diagnosed with acrocyanosis.
If you are noticing symptoms that include bluish discoloration in your feet, you feel that they are constantly colder in temperature or they feel moist and sweaty to the touch, you may be developing acrocyanosis. There are also some patients who will have swelling and in more severe cases there can be a bit of ulceration.
