As the name suggests, chilblains are small, itchy swellings that appear on the skin due to exposure to cold or humid conditions over a period. The tissue gets inflammed, and the symptoms of damaged capillary beds in the skin are usually visible. This condition affects the extreme parts of the body that are more susceptible to cold, like the fingertips, toes, nose, ears, and heels. Chilblains rarely cause any permanent damage and tend to heal within weeks with proper precautions. A homeopathic remedy for chilblains like Agaricus works to reduce the swelling and inflammation, and also provide relief from painful symptoms. Chilblains are also known as Perniosis or Chilburns.
