Queen Elizabeth Sparks New Health Scare Due To Hand Discoloration
The public warmly welcomed the Queen when she returned to her public life. Buckingham Palace shared photos of the Queen in her first public engagement on Twitter.
However, many noticed that something was off with the Queen's discolored hands. Her Majesty's hand looked purple, which could indicate peripheral cyanosis's health condition, which can be caused by arterial and blood supply problems, Express reported.
The symptoms of cyanosis include blue color on the lips, tongue, gums, ears, or skin. It can mean there is not enough oxygen due to lungs, airways, or heart problems. Another cause of cyanosis is Raynaud's, which affects the fingers and toes. Their color will change as if you wear clothing or jewelry that is too tight.
Cyanosis is a symptom of many different conditions and the treatment depends on the cause. Beta-blockers, a medicine used to treat high blood pressure, could also cause the condition.
