Raynaud’s disease is a condition that affects the circulation to your extremities. The condition can cause your fingers, toes, nose and ears to feel cold and numb in cooler temperatures, or during periods of stress.

This disease, which is more common in women, causes the smaller arteries that carry blood to your skin to narrow.

According to the Mayo Clinic, treatment of Raynaud’s disease depends on the severity of your condition.
