It is not always 100% clear why some patients will get chilblains when temperatures are cold and others do not. However, there seems to be a direct connection to those patients who seem to have poor circulation. Tiny blood vessels that are under the skin can narrow, causing the blood supply to be very low. Once the skin starts to warm up again, there can be some fluid leakage into the tissues from the blood vessels. This seems to be one of the major causes of inflammation and swelling that can lead to chilblains.
Some of the symptoms that you may start to notice when you have chilblains will be a burning sensation or a great deal of itching. There can also be a good bit of pain and/or tenderness that will start to develop where the reddened patches are.
