Hi all,

I haven't been posting a lot lately -- busy life, not feeling great -- but I do still check in daily! However, right now, I'm having a problem that I thought I could tap the collective WHL wisdom for advice about.

I have chilblains on my toes. They're basically red spots that are both itchy and painful, and living in the wintry north doesn't help them any. I know some of y'all have dealt with these, too, as they're more common in those of us with autoimmune disease and Raynaud's. No "normal" people seem to know what I'm talking about-- including my aunt, who is a doctor ("Never actually seen those in real life!").

So, tips for managing these? Standing and walking ranges from uncomfortable to painful. Sleeping is difficult because the itchiness keeps me up. They seem to be getting worse each day, not better.

I am so annoyed. I don't even know what I'm going to do next week when I actually need to wear my suit and pumps for work. My feet are not going to be happy...

Thank you all!
