For whatever reason, possibly Raynaud's, I get problems with icy hands and feet (and sometimes nose!). I also have dermographism, a skin condition which causes my skin to come up in welts if it's scratched, if I wear certain fabrics such as wool, or if I wear something too constrictive. I've tried those tubular joint supports when I was having problems with joint pain and they just made my skin red and horrendously itchy, although when I was having surgery a month ago, I was fine with the compression stockings they put on me. I'm looking into fingerless gloves for keeping my hands warm. I've tried standard acrylic ones and I couldn't wear them, too itchy. I also tried a fairly long pair of cotton ones, this was for when I was getting RSI pain and it was so that I could put ointments on my hands/forearm and then cover them up, but again they got itchy. Any idea what sort of gloves might work? Thinsulate? Those fancy cotton ones with a bit of silver woven into them? It'll be a nuisance having to take them off every time I go to the loo, so I don't want anything that's too difficult to peel off. I'm in the UK, and I'm 4'11 so I have rather small hands. Being vegan, I won't use silk, and I couldn't tolerate wool even if I wanted to.
