Any tips on how to prevent chilblains (other than preventing hands getting cold and warming up too quickly) and how to speed up healing?
I had chilblains on the fingers of my right hand and the knuckle of my left hand in late Nov. The fingers became itchy, inflamed, swollen and the skin discoloured red, purple and white and eventually the skin split and peeled. I had a course of antibiotics early Dec because it looked like there was infection. The skin hasn't completely healed yet and the chilblains seem to have flared again as the same fingers are itchy, red swelling and tender to touch the last couple of days. Clarityn is dealing with the itching.
