Make an appointment to see your doctor if you're concerned about persistently cold hands. Your doctor can check if your cold hands are caused by a problem with your blood circulation or nerves. Treatment is aimed at the underlying cause of your cold hands. Depending on your condition, your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes to help improve symptoms.
