Cold and Red hands (and arms)

Patient

Q: I have a problem with my hands that i do not know. 1) they are cold, like one hour they are warm and the next they are freezing and hard to warm up and usually dont for hours. Whenever i hold my girlfriends hand she always comments on how they are cold and hers always seem so warm! 2) also, just recently, i will look down and my whole arm will be red. It will look like i have sunburn but it doesnt hurt and i havent been out in the sun. my girlfriend also comments on this too, she even thinks it is her fault because most of the times it happens im with her but this has also happened when im not around her and im not sure why. If you could please help me understand these problems it would be greatly appreciated. Oh and if it helps i am not overweight at all, i am a normal weight for my age.
