Hi, Today I was in Math class and I looked at the palm of my hand and my thumb pad had turned Blue, I do have a lot of visible veins on my thumb pad. I was not immediately alarmed as I thought I had simply smudged a Blue Highlighter in my workbook, However I went to the bathroom and washed my hands and they were still blue. I came back and showed my teacher and she shrugged it off. It has happened numerous times in the past. I am only Fourteen so I am not sure if it is a serious condition of if I shall not worry.

Thanks :)

  • Blue hands are caused due to lack of oxygen in the blood flow. You could experience this if you are on a higher altitude, if you are choking or if you are suffering from a chronic underlying ailment which could include a chronic disease in the heart or lungs. I do not wish to scare you, but I advice you to consult a doctor as soon as possible who could examine your condition and help you identify the reason behind the symptoms you are experiencing.
