Chilblains [Feb. 22nd, 2012|10:55 am]
Tony Grist
Ailz has chilblains. I thought that's what they were- and now her podiatrist confirms it. I have them too, I think, though I haven't had them diagnosed. Chilblains are caused by nerves getting themselves frozen to death, so we need to work harder at keeping our feet warm.

We spend much of the day in a room with an unreconstructed wood floor. Very picturesque, very draughty. I've imported a mat from the front room (where it's not needed) to cover up some of the gaps between the boards.

That is a painful condition.

There are socks with thermal properties that you might look into. They're made for hunters and outdoors people and really work.

Ailz says she's got a pair of those on at the moment- and her feet are still cold :(

Oh dear...poor circulation must be complicating the matter, then.

Yup, if it's cold enough, I have to wear socks AND booties, AND get some of those foot-warmer packets. . .

This has been a hard winter. We need to stock up with socks and boots before the next one comes along.
