Skin lesion on cold weather
avatar
bobdylan11 posted:
I had no experience with cold weather. While traveling in Europe i exposed my hands for several days to low temperatures, from 0 to 6 degrees celsius on average. I felt my hands a bit painful and burning everyday but nothing happened to it. However, there was a particular day that i could not manage the cold in my hands, in such day my hand's skin were severely dry and got lesions over those bones before the fingers. The skin in those spots were peeling and the region stayed in purple color for several days, then it turned redish and now it is looking like a soft sunburn(has been so for two months).

Does anyone know what is that? How can i make my skin back to the original color?
