Raynaud's Phenomenon Prevention

Preventing the arteries from narrowing is the key to living successfully with Raynaud's phenomenon.

  • Avoid cold weather. Dress in warm, loose-fitted layers of clothing.
  • If you smoke, work with your doctor to try to stop.
  • Try to identify stressors in your life that worsen the symptoms.
  • Remain active and exercise regularly because this also improves blood flow to the hands and feet.
