    I've seen more chilblains in the last 6 months - unusually cold and very damp winter in Ireland - than in the last 20 plus years.

    I can "ditto" your observation. The first 10 years in practise I saw none but in the last ten years they seem to be reappearing. This year has been the worst and I have noted a large increase in the volume and severity in 2010. I had been blaming the increase in use of cold floor tiling as opposed to a warmer lino or carpet. But this years weather has played havoc for people with impaired circulation because excercise has been impossible for the elderly throughout the cold blast. I have also noticed, through domicilary work, that anyone still living with only a fireplace for heating will usually have chillblains in the feet and protruding veins on the legs - only on the side which is facing the fire.
