Ask the Doc with Dr. Whaley – numb fingers, sharp pains, and extreme dry skin

Health

Doctor Whaley from the Georgia Cancer Specialist came to sit with us today to discuss some great viewer questions. This week he discussed how smart phone addictions in adolescents are leading to anti social behavior and the following viewer questions:

My fingers have been getting numb and turning white and feel cold and it lasts for approximately 15 minutes should i be concerned?

I have been having sharp pains in one side of my head the pains are sudden and sharp but do not last very long is this just a type of migraine?

Since the weather has been colder i have been experiencing extreme dry skin to the point it skin breaks open and nothing I’ve used seems to alleviate the problem so I wondered if there is an over the counter solution which may help?
