hi, i had the same problem and i contemplated wearing gloves but in the end settled for a good demonstration of hand warming in the presence of the sp and the moment i touch their skin i would ask if my hands were cold and all said no! my result is not out yet so idk if this is acceptable.
all the best

you have 3 options:
1. wear gloves
2. warm your hands in front of the sp to atleast show to him that you are conscious of the fact that you need to examine with warm hands
3. use hand warmers....you can purchase them from any general store in america and use them before the exam.

best of luck

Not sure what part of my comment you thought was rude.

As you stated, "let people discuss wt they want to", thats exactly what i was doing.. I just gave a suggestion to the OP.

I hope you dont think im against you or anyone in particular.
