    Just something that's niggling at me-

    Before christmas I got chilblaines (for the first time) on a few of my toes. They cleared up after a bit, but ever since the toes have been sensitive and feel slightly bruised. It's been 3 months- I wondered if this is normal?! :confused:

    Anyhoo, any replies appreciated. I'd quite like to go back to wearing shoes that aren't my tatty-but-comfortable old trainers!


    I also get chilblains. Usually, to make sure I don't get them. Is to ensure I'm wearing socks at all times when I'm not wearing shoes. When I go to bed, I make sure that I am wearing thin socks when I first get into bed, then take them off after the bed has warmed up a bit.

    On the matter of your toes being sensitive and feeling slightly bruised. Ever since I've first had chilblains my feet haven't quite been the same ; this could be a similar experience you are having.

    Though, it may be a good idea to get them checked out with your GP. As well as reading up on conditions that may cause chilblains; Reynaud's phenomenon etc.

    Hope this helps.

    I get them and I live in Australia, where it doesn't get THAT cold. I just have bad circulation. I make sure I wear socks to bed and gloves on my hands when I go outside, although that doesn't stop them.
