I live in New England. Often, when I come home from a long walk somewhere, my hands will be very, very cold.
My immediate instinct is to run them under hot water for immediate relief. It produces a very pleasing, tingly sensation.
However, I’m wondering if there could be any negative side effects for such a quick fluctuation in the temperature of my hands. Sometimes I feel a slight ache after, but that could just be in my head.
