    Here's my problem, when the weather is transitioning from winter to summer and vice versa my hands and feel swell! The skin on my hands and feet gets red, super sweaty, pains and burns. There is a slight burn and tingling sensation when i touch things. Example: my hands feel brick cold yet its so sweaty it feels like i just washed my hands without drying it and it hurts, even as i am typing this it hurts. What can this be? I am a healthy young woman and i never been sick in my life. Could this be arthritis? I ask my doctors and they always gave me "its okay just the weather" answer. but this is affecting me everyday where i cannot touch anything. Sometimes i cannot lotion my own skin after a shower because my hands feel so irritated and burning.
