Hello Sqad and those in the know

I think I have chilblains on my toe. I broke the very same toe a few months back and in the last few days it's been absolute agony. I assumed I had knocked it in my sleep or similar.

After some googling it would appear I have chilblains instead.
It's very hot, red, itchy and very painful. I also have Reynauds which probably doesn't help.

This is something I have not suffered with before but the pain is ridiculous (I suffer with pain daily for other reasons and this is a whole new level).

I don't have any blisters but it is very hot red and itchy. How do I know if it's infected? What can I do beside keeping my feet warm and no extreme temps.

Thanks for your help

GF

IF Chilblains, then you do know an old home remedy was to soak the toe in warm urine, or apply same on a gauze dressing.


I agree the itching is the worst or was for me.
You need to keep warm , can you not wear soft woollen socks? i used to wear my school football socks in bed it helped a bit but I still suffered. This was back in the 1950s no insulation no heating ( apart from the coal fire) no double glazing. The rooms were often below freezing. I thought chilblains were a thing of the past. They are a mild form of frost bite.
if chilblains, try aloe vera
