My wife was recently diagnosed with chilblains. Her toe’s swelled up, turns purple and are very painful. They itch all the time. Cold-water help but only lasts for a short while. If she keeps them elevated the swelling will go down and return to pink color. However when she stands on her feet her toe turn purple and begin to itch. Is there anything she can do to help heal this. :o :o :o :(
