    Anybody else have these "chilblains" things in winter?

    I've had blistering toes for a few weeks and finally got yelled at to go to a doctor, who now says they're chilblains, which apparently are blisters caused by cold/damp exposure that last for weeks and aren't very fun. The more I read the more it makes sense, but these sound like a seasonal / old person problem (I am getting old) and I never want them again .

    Anybody else deal with these? Are there any preventative tips, aside from thicker socks and better shoes maybe? My folks got me a 4 lb bag of epson salts, I officially feel old now.

      Brunsonja ... at 72, and living in New England, I've heard of such. Don't think I've experienced them.
      Maybe I'm not old enough yet? Or maybe it has something to do with your footwear?
      Let us know if you find a solution.

        Chilblains can be reduced by keeping the feet and hands warm in cold weather

        Invest in a pair or two of warm and waterproof shoes. Don't forget to dry your footwear completely if it gets wet
