"Don't put your cold hands on me!" (recommended),
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HotHands Hand Warmers (Sports)
If your mate has ever complained about your cold hands, you need HOT HANDS. My hands get cold -- very cold -- even in mild weather. Besides keeping a pair of gloves in coat pockets and cars, there has been little relief. When the whether gets bad, I would stay in the house and submerge my hands in warm water. Then I received a set of hand warmers as a thank-you gift from a supplier. I never heard of such a thing! Where has this been all my life?
It takes 15-30 minutes of exposure to air (outside the sealed package) to reach maximum temperature. It is best to keep the 2" x 3" odorless pads in a glove or pocket where the heat is less prone to dissipate. Without HOT HANDS, even fur lined gloves would not warm my cold hands since the fur only insulates the existing temperature (like a thermos). By radiating heat within the glove and making a fist to reach fingertips, it doesn't take long for hands to feel warmer.
Pad temperature is is mostly just above normal body temperature (perhaps 100 degrees f). The pad can get extremely warm (perhaps 125+ degrees) after remaining in a pocket for a length of time. Periodically pulling open a glove at the wrist to let some fresh air in and squeezing a fist several times also reactivates more heat. After about 10-12 hours the heat is all gone and the pads can be discarded. If you need to rely on manual dexterity for typing or turning pages, you may be able to get by with just one pad at a time and no glove -- switching hands when necessary. Since they are individually wrapped, there is no waste.
I am truly thankful for discovering such a wonderful product. So as not to run out, I purchased a second box after trying just one pad. Now, in addition to gloves, I have HOT HANDS everywhere, even in my night stand for cold evenings.

Have you considered that you might possibly be hypothyroid? Perhaps you should be checked for it. This condition really makes your hands cold until it's properly treated. Best to find a holistic M.D. or D.O., as the traditional docs don't do a good job diagnosing or treating. Good luck to you!

Cold hands as described can also be caused by Raynaud's - a circulatory condition variously called a "syndrome," "disease," etc. It varies in severity but even a fairly mild case can be dangerous in cold weather because your hands/feet can get frostbite much quicker than "normal" people. The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (part of NIH) and Mayo Clinic websites, among others of course, have info on Raynaud's.
