Can you advise me on what gloves to get. My hands get very cold and my thumbs in particular have recently become very painful. In addition my skin splits at the top of my thunms in cold weather. It is extreemely cold where I live, day and night.

    Hi Cakie,

    Thanks for your message.

    I am sorry to hear about your cold and painful hands. It has been particularly chilly recently.

    The Disabled Living Foundation would be a good place to start for gloves. They are a charity which provide impartial advice and can help you find the most suitable ones for the problems you are describing. and footwear/outerwear-including-gloves-2507/

    They also have a helpline if you have any queries: 0300 999 0004.

    You might like to post your message onto the Living With Arthritis forum too - I'm sure other members would be more than happy to share their experiences and solutions with you.

    I do hope this helps. If you would like to call us for a chat on our freephone helpline number, 0808 800 4050 Mon-Fri 10am - 4pm we would be more than happy to hear from you.
