They arent massively swollen but noticeably so and toes are slightly reddened???

dehydration? what happens when you press the skin gently?

PS I'm not medical so TBH you should maybe phone NHS direct if you're worried

Skin springs back. Thanks for bringing that up as I wouldnt have thought of that but I dont think its dehydration as been getting plenty of fluids.

mmm not a clue, could just be the heat? I get swollen fingers in the heat (very attractive) but it still might be worth giving the Drs a call if you're worried. Presumably she's not ill as well as I'm guessing you'd have said?

this happened to my son. then his hands swelled up. went to docotrs. loadsa tests. then they decided he was simply just having an odd reaction to a cold he had. not a bad cold. just a runny nose .
