I have a chunk of ear tip missing from cold exposure, but it's much better since I started taking neurontin and prednisone. What about one of those small, cube type ceramic heaters to sit on your desk? They use very little electricity and are very safe. Is there a chance you could rearrange your office so you could tuck your desk into a corner away from the door or window draft? If you could explain to your boss you were asking for medical reasons, maybe your company would give you permission. Could you get a note from your dr. to back you up? I know the American's With Disabilities Act provides us with "reasonable accomodation" for our disability, and hey, you couldn't work if you didn't have workable digits. If you go to a mall anchor store, like Macy's or Target, you can find soft, thin, (and probably pricey) leather gloves. With a ruler and sharp shears, you could snip off the fingers, a little at a time, and arrive at the best length for you to work in. Do you have a nearby microwave? I made several tubes of flannel, one small for a keyboard pad, and one big for my feet, that I filled with feedcorn, (not popcorn, the big corn you feed cows from a feedstore), that are absolutely wonderful when heated in the microwave to wrap around the cold sore places, that I absolutely wouldn't want to live without. Hope you find something to help,
God knows, even if I don't....
