If your fingertips remain red, you might want to see a doctor because it could be nothing but it could be something very serious. You could have lukemia, liver problems, hepatitis, hypothyroidism, or a number of other conditions. There's really no way to know for sure until you are tested by a physician.

You may have a mild case of eczema, very dry skin, or may be having a allergic reaction to something you came in contact with. To get a accurate diagnosis you should see a Dermatologist. They may prescribe to you medication, or special soaps that can help your fingertips to improve.
