It’s importantnot to scratch the skin as it can break easily and become infected. When to seek medical advice for chilblains It’s that time of year again when the low temperatures are making our feet feel frozen, numb and cold. All you want to do is find warmth in a nice hot shower, electric blanket, hot water bottle or heater. You may not know it yet, but sometimes exposing your feet to extreme changes in temperatures can cause chilblains. Chilblains present as itchy and painful red lumps on your toes that can drive you up the wall! CHILBLAINS: What are chilblains?

When your feet and toes get cold, the blood vessels constrict and the circulation is impaired. In your effort to warm your feet as fast as you can, you may accidentally be causing damage to tiny capillaries and vessels in your toes. Putting your feet into a hot water bath will increase the circulation to your toes, but faster than the blood vessels can expand. If your shoe size means you fall between sizes, we recommend selecting the larger size to achieve the most comfortable fit possible. Size Most individuals seem to get chilblains in cool, damp climates, but it's the rapid warming of the blood and rupturing cells that creates the chilblain, not the weather. A chilblain is painful, red swelling that appears on the tips of the toes and fingers. This occurs when the blood vessels suddenly expand.Chilblains appear as red or purple bumps on the skin that may be itchy and swollen. In some cases, they can also blister or ulcerate. The symptoms usually appear several hours after exposure to cold temperatures and can last for weeks before healing completely. Occasionally, a blood test or sample of the lesion may be recommended. This is to rule out other conditions. How are chilblains treated?

Chilblains rarely require treatment because they are not a serious condition and often heal on their own. It’s important that you make sure what you have is a chilblain before commencing any home remedies. If you’re not sure then seek help from a podiatrist. At our clinic we invest in the latest innovative technology and had great success with Low Level Laser Therapy to treat chilblains. So if home remedies aren’t helping then let us know! We’re here to help. Essential fatty acids are necessary for circulatory health and blood vessel integrity. Add sesame seeds, oats, and almonds to your diet. Chilblains are an abnormal inflammatory response to cold conditions. They are blisters or lesions that are usually red and can be painful in nature if severe enough. See your doctor if your symptoms are ongoing or you can't get your pain under control. Also see your doctor if you have a lot of chilblains.

Chilblains are skin inflammations that are frequently accompanied by itching or burning. They are caused by a reaction to cold and are most commonly found on the small toes, fingers, face, or nose. Moreover, they can occur in pressure-sensitive areas such as a bunion. Nifedipine can be used to help existing chilblains heal, or can be taken during the winter tostopthem developing. Preventing chilblains Stopping smoking. Smoking decreases circulation and increases your risk of chilblains. If you get recurrent chilblains and smoke, try to quit smoking to help reduce your chances of getting it again. Raynaud’s disease (smaller arteries that supply blood to your skin become narrow, limiting blood flow to affected areas) If your chilblains do not go away on their own, continue to worsen, or have developed into open wounds or pustules, you should see a qualified medical podiatrist or general practitioner.

Chilblainsusually develop several hours after exposure to the cold. Theytypically cause a burning and itching sensation in the affected areas, whichcan become more intense if you go into a warm room. You should consume calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A and K, and fiber-rich foods or supplements. chilblains appear as small itchy, red areas on the skin in some cases the skin over a chilblain may blister which may delay healing sometimes the skin breaks down to leave a small ulcer which is prone to infectionThe best way to prevent chilblains is to keep your legs, feet and body warm, especially if your circulation is poor and your mobility is limited. Otherwise, cover them with a dry dressing (like Melolin – available from supermarkets and pharmacies) and try to avoid clothing that rubs them.

When the skin is cold, blood vessels near its surface get narrower.If the skin is then exposed to heat, the blood vessels become wider. Heat a bowl of water and add salt to it. Soak your skin's affected areas in this water. Make sure the water is not too hot. Chilblains are caused by changes to your blood vessels in response to the cold. You are more likely to develop chilblains if you are sensitive to the cold. warm your shoes on the radiator before you put them on – make sure damp shoes are dry before you wear them; if your feet are already cold, make sure your shoes aren’t too hot to avoid causing chilblainsDuring the onset of winter, susceptible people will experience a burning and itching on their hands and feet which intensifies upon entering a warm room. There may also be some swelling or redness, and in extreme cases the surface of the skin may break down and sores (ulcers) may develop. What are the treatments? Do your feet feel cold and numb during the winter months? Do you experience redness and itching on your toes and fingers? If so, you may be suffering from a condition called chilblains. If you experience any foot care issues which do not resolve themselves naturally or through routine foot care within three weeks, you should seek the help of a healthcare professional. The blood vessels that supply your skin, first constrict and then as they refill, they can leak fluid under the skin – resulting in the toes/fingers/tips of ears becoming itchy, red & swollen, often with burning sensation and being very tender to the touch.
