Lanolin Cream

Lanolin Cream

Lanolin can help to retain body heat when applied to the hands or feet. Body heat promotes circulation which helps to prevent chilblains forming and therefore can often be effective particularly for mild chilblains.Ref 3-4

Over-the-counter medicated ointment

Over-the-counter medicated ointment

There are several chilblain relief creams available and are commonly stocked in most pharmacists. These usually work by numbing the area using a chemical based local anaesthetic such as Benzocaine. These ointments can provide significant relief and are sometimes effective for chilblains sufferers, however it is quite common for chilblains to reoccur.

Home remedies

Home Remedies

Many home remedies are not only largely unproven, but often detrimental to the individual. An example of this is the use of a hot water bottle to warm your hands or feet. This heat is often too intense and the sudden change in temperature actually worsens the chilblains.

Effectiveness: Often detrimental 

Washing or scrubbing your face will help clear up acne

Avoid Do not use a hot water bottle or other heat sources directly on chilblains.Ref 1

It is not recommended to use this type of treatment for chilblains. A hot water bottle may simply encourage the inflammation of the affected area causing it to worsen. Hot Water bottles, although effective for joint relief or muscle pain, are not effective for circulation problems, cold feet or stiffness from cool temperatures which are 3 issues linked to the cause of chilblains. They also open the user to risk of burning from a spillage accident or application of the high heat for a long period of time.

Avoid Steroid creams are no longer recommended for the treatment (or prevention) of chilblains.Ref 2

Steroid creams are available for treatment of the inflamed area as an effective method of temporarily reducing the inflammation. However they may cause many adverse side affects such as easy bruising, skin thinning, enlarged blood vessels, stretch marks and allergic reactions. Many different strengths of the steroid cream can also create further reactions both short term and long term possibly resulting in damage to the skin. This is why we prefer the much safer natural solution of Best Chilblains treatment ointment that is guaranteed to work.
