Chilblains are small, itchy swellings on the skin that occur as a reaction to cold temperatures.
They most often affect the body’s extremities, such as the toes, fingers, heels, ears and nose.
Chilblains can be uncomfortable, but rarely cause any permanent damage. They normally heal within a few weeks if further exposure to the cold is avoided.
Chilblains usually develop several hours after exposure to the cold. They typically cause a burning and itching sensation in the affected areas, which can become more intense if you go into a warm room.
The affected skin may also swell and turn red or dark blue.
In severe cases, the surface of the skin may break and sores or blisters can develop.
It’s important not to scratch the skin as it can break easily and become infected.
When to seek medical advice for chilblains
You should also seek medical advice if you think your skin may have become infected.
Signs of infection include:
To assist with restoration and increased blood flow throughout the body, drink 1 to 2 capsules, as needed, daily of the Blood Flow Support Blend.
If you have to drink more than one capsule a day, spread them throughout the day, never more than two capsules at a time. Spreading the capsules throughout the day assists the body with proper absorption. Always good to have a very small snack/fruit before drinking capsules.
If you prefer to prepare your own; 2 drops each; Cinnamon 5ml 10ml, Ginger 5ml 10ml, and Turmeric 5ml 10ml and fill the capsule with Frankincense/Myrrh Blend or any organic carrier oil, drink 1 capsule up to twice a day, as needed.
