sensitive fingertips

my daughter's fingertips look red and very chapped and recently they look burned and she's been complaining of them hurting.  She hasn't burned her fingers and touched anything hot to cause them to be irritated.  What could it be?

Hi,
How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Aside from possible poor circulation or infection, erythromelalgia should be ruled out. Erythromelalgia is a condition characterized by intense burning pain, erythema  or marked redness, and increased skin temperature, primarily of the feet and hands. This is a type of neuropathic pain syndrome where there is dilation of the small blood vessels that become congested with blood. The cause is usually not known. It is best that you have your daughter see her doctor for proper evaluation.A referral to a dermatologist or neurologist may also help. Take care and do keep us posted.
