Some patients with severe cases of acrocyanosis will have damage to the skin or ulcerations that closely mimic the problems that are present with a diagnosis of Raynaud’s disease.
The normal symptoms and signs of acrocyanosis will be blue color in the feet, cold temperature to the touch, moist or sweaty feeling to the skin and a decent amount of swelling. There will very few instances where pain will be involved, however there can be some significant discomfort in patients who have a great deal of swelling in their extremities.
