I think I have a chilblain what can I do?

Chilblains are a common concern in colder climates like we have during a Melbourne winter. They are best prevented by trying to ensure that your feet and toes are kept consistently warm and dry. Rapid changes in temperature are one of the main causes of chilblains. Good socks and warm waterproof shoes go a long way towards preventing this condition. Should you be experiencing chilblains our K Laser provides a fantastic treatment option to them. The K laser can be used to stimulate blood flow to the individual chilblains which rapidly accelerates healing of the chilblain.
