There Can Be Complications Of Chilblains
If you are not able to get the right treatment or you are not diligent about the course of treatment that you are given for the cold feet you are dealing with, it can sometimes lead to skin ulcerations, infections and even scarring. The complications will sometimes be linked to any sort of underlying health condition that you may have or an illness that is not yet showing other symptoms.
How Do We Diagnose Chilblains?
Diagnosing the chilblains, cold feet condition is fairly straightforward. If the symptoms are present and clear and you have been exposed to colder temperatures, it will be easy for us to diagnose the condition as being chilblains.
However, it is also important that we work with you to do a full examination and go over your medical history just to rule out some other conditions including ischemia, lupus or erythromelagia. Whenever the diagnosis has any level of doubt, it may be necessary for us to do further testing by taking a skin biopsy.
