Chilblains, also known as cold feet, is a condition that develops in response to the skin being subjected to very cold temperatures. If you have noticed the development of chilblains on your feet and/or your toes, you could be experiencing bumps that are small, red, painful and itchy. One phone call to our team at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will help you to get the information that you need to get you on a path for professional chilblains (cold feet) treatment in Mercer Island.
Generally, these bumps will appear after only a couple of hours of exposure to the cold. If it seems as though this is a red and uncomfortable condition that you are getting more and more often, it could be due to the fact that you have an issue going on with circulation.
For some patients, chilblains on the feet can turn from red patches of swollen skin to areas that are darker in color and can then turn into blisters. When blisters take place, there may be cracking of the skin and a noticeable increase in pain. This will usually start to go away once the feet are gradually warmed up, however there will be a need for proper antibiotic therapies to make sure that no infection starts to develop.
