Chilblains

How to treat Chilblains on my fingers?


Take precautions to slowly warm your hands after being exposed to the cold.

Chilblains occur because of abrupt exposure to changes (cold to warm) in temperature.

When your fingers are cold and then suddenly rewarmed - small blood vessels in your hands expand too quickly. Resulting in blood leaking into the surrounding skin tissues..

Try and keep your skin dry and warm.

Chilblains often become itchy during the healing process and the urge to scratch can be very hard to resist.

Good advise is to first clean the surface of the skin with an antiseptic. Treating Chilblains with witch hazel or calamine lotion can help relieve the itching. Then gently rub in lanolin to keep your hands warmer.


Try to limit exposure of your hands to cold temperatures.


These annoying bumps consist of fluid filled blood plasma which seeped out into the surrounding tissues. So it is recommended not to massage Chilblains.

We suggest you try a pair of these far infrared gloves.

FIR helps - dilate blood vessels, improve elasticity and relieve the symptoms.

Treating & Preventing Chilblains on Fingers:

Chilblains are not terribly serious, but are very painful, if your fingers are touched or banged. Be careful not to scratch and open the skin, as you may get some secondary conditions or infections.

We recommend wearing Prolotex™ Far infrared Therapy Gloves to help protect and prevent your fingers from getting cold and damp.

Keeping your hands warm and avoiding sudden changes in temperatures will help prevent chilblains.

 

Why Do Far Infrared products help prevent Chilblains?

The threads in Prolotex™ products are fused with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR). These waves of soothing FIR energy penetrate deep into the tissues of your body and basically increase the molecular activity of the cells.

The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your body dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach the extremities of toes & fingers.
