Hi Everyone! Andre here senior podiatrist at Ac podiatry.
What I want to talk to you about today is what is the cause of chilblains and how to avoid it.
So chilblains are something that we generally see a lot more in winter because of the fact that then as a rule tied to circulation and we as we know where things get cold our feet our fingers circulation tends to drop off.
What are chilblains
Chilblains generally come up as itchy, purple, painful red-colored type lesions on the skin, toes, and fingers if left untreated they can become infected and ulcerate, they are really really annoying. Chilblains are also known as pernio or perniosis. They are a localized form of vasculitis.
Basically a combination of pressure and cold weather will generally aggravate or drive chilblains
