Most people know that a blue tint can be a sign of low oxygen levels, which can indicate a serious and even life-threatening condition. When the skin turns a bluish color, it is also called 'cyanosis' or 'cyanosis'. Mostly blue fingers and hands are caused by a lack of oxygen in the blood. This can happen if you are at a high altitude or if you have breathlessness, but it can also be the result of chronic underlying conditions such as lung disease or chronic heart disease.
