Chilblains

Chilblains are pesky painful and itchy lesions that usually appear on the toes of those that are vulnerable to them in certain cold climates.


Poor circulation is not a problem in chilblains, but it is more an issue of a to rapid change in temperature from cold to warm that triggers an abnormal response in the blood vessels and how the body controls them. It is an inflammation in response to the build up of waste products from this process that actually causes the chilblain.
