Interesting information about chilblains.
Chilblains are cold burns on certain parts of the body. Normally, the ones that are most exposed to the cold. Fingers, nose and ears. The medical condition occurs when a person is exposed to cold and moisture causing tissue damage. It is often confused with freezing.
Damage to capillaries on the skin causes redness, itching, swelling and sometimes blisters. Chilblains can be reduced by keeping the feet and hands warm, avoiding external changes in temperature. The skin can change color through red, purple and dark blue.
Chilblains can be idiopathic (spontaneous and unrelated to another disease), but they can also be a manifestation of another serious medical condition that should be studied by the doctor treating the case. A history of chilblains suggests a connective tissue disease. Chilblains can also be caused by Raynaud's disease, the disease that some people suffer from where the fingers become white due to low blood circulation.
In infants, chilblains, along with severe neurological disease and unexplained fevers, occur in the Arcadi-Goutières syndrome, a rare hereditary condition.
The chilblains should disappear after a couple of weeks if they take care of themselves and protect themselves from the cold and damp conditions. if not, check with your doctor to find out where the disease is coming from.
