IF CHILBLAINS HAVE DEVELOPED:
Don't scratch them; soothing lotions such as witch hazel or calamine will take
away most of the discomfort.
If the chilblain has ulcerated, apply an antiseptic dressing. If you have
diabetes or undergoing medical treatment, have the ulcer assessed by your GP or
If the chilblain hasn't broken you can paint them with a mixture of friar's
balsam and a weak solution of iodine, which your pharmacist may make up for you,
or an over-the-counter preparation. At night, rub some lanolin ointment well
into the feet to help retain heat.
Who Can Benefit from Podiatric Surgery?
Podiatric Surgery is suitable
for most patients who need surgical correction of their feet. Conditions
included bunions, hammer toes, chronic corns, bony lumps, neuromas or even in
the most severe cases, flat feet. As most Podiatric Surgery is carried out as
day case surgery using local anaesthetic, it provides patients a solution
without a long stay in hospital and with acceptable levels of post operative
The most modern internal fixation techniques are used by Podiatric Surgeons,
ensuring the patient is usually walking very soon after surgery and in most
cases, without uncomfortable, heavy or cumbersome casts on their feet..
As many foot problems that cause patients to regularly visit their podiatrist
are due to a fault or bony deformity, they should ask their podiatrist for
advice regarding surgery to cure the problem. If they are unsure about surgery
under local anaesthetic, then the patient should ask the Podiatric Surgeon or GP
about general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic with sedation.
