Primary Prevention

Treatment of primary Raynaud's focuses on avoiding triggers. Prevention is the mainstay of treatment.

  • Avoidance of any environmental triggers, e.g. cold, drilling, etc. (although emotional stress is a recognized trigger, it tends to be impossible to consciously avoid).
  • Warm clothing for the extremities such as mittens or HeatBands
  • Hormone regulation and assessment of the type of hormonal contraception used, if any. Contraception which is low in estrogen is preferable, and the progesterone only pill is often prescribed.
  • Smoking cessation.
