Do any of you get a red nose and/or face when you go walking? I come in looking like Rudolph sometimes and it can last 1-2 days...it happens to my nose and my face. It doesn't have to be snowing or wintery outside, it happens on any cool day?

My nose gets red quite frequently. It looks similar to an alcohol-induced red nose. It really could glow in the dark. Mine even turns red in the summer. When I go from the heat to a/c. Mine comes and goes, it doesn't stay that way that long.

Once in a while I get a red nose, and it doesn't seem to be from going into the cold. I was pretty flushed the other day, and I wondered if I was getting the tell-tale sign of Lupus, the butterfly rash across my face.

Raynaud's may also affect the tip of the nose, earlobes, cheeks, chin, or lungs. Breathing cold air can cause a coughing attack if there is Raynaud's in the lungs. The lungs are the internal organ most frequently affected by Raynaud's.

Now, since my skin has "loosened up", I perspire, whether it's warm, or not. My feet can be cold as ice cubes... to the touch, yet "feel" warm...
Carrie, the Raynauds main menu that you put up explains it well... Thank you!
I hope you all have a good day, today... we're expecting temps in the low 80s and then it's supposed to "cool down" a bit, thereafter. It's really unseasonably warm, for us in MT (Love it, but really need some rain).

Nan, yes that can describe mine to a tee! Plus, parts of my whole face gets that too, I think it's any skin on my face that is exposed to the cold/wind!
We sure get some weird stuff sometimes....whatever this is, it's new to me...
