There is a condition known as Reynaulds syndrome which affects the hands and feet. For some reason it occurs in young women more than other people. It is a disorder of the circulation but can be helped with the appropriate medication which improves the blood supply to the area.
Regular exercise and use of gloves are all little things that you can do to help keep a healthy circulation
The other thing it could be is a side effect of the Lexapro. You need to see your doctor to see if this is related and whether your dose needs to be reduced. Do not reduce your dose yourself as it may need to be tailed off to avoid withdrawal symptoms.
Does this help?
