CHILBLAIN

Written by

Chilblain, or erythema pernio (see under ERYTHEMA), is an inflamed condition of the hands or feet, or occasionally of the ears, and should not be confused with cracked or CHAPPED HANDS. Most commonly found in childhood and old age, it may be associated with generally poor health, though there may also be a genetic predisposition. Prevention with good food, warm clothing, a warm environment, and regular exercise to maintain the circulation, is the best treatment.
