Chilblains occur in the very cold weather when small blood vessels under the surface of the Skin in the hands and feet constrict. This will usually cause a red or purple swelling on a toe or a finger and an itchy feeling. It is very important for those who are susceptible to chilblains, such as the elderly, to keep their hands and feet warm during the winter. This should help to prevent them forming.
