With Adelaide's coldest night in 3 year, our feet are at a great risk of chilblains than they have been for some time.
Chilblains are an inflammatory response in the skin that occur when the micro-circulation in the skin does not respond adequately to a change in temperature. The cold exposure damages capillary beds in the skin, which in turn can cause itchyness, redness, blisters and a burning sensation in the feet.
