In brief: Chilblains

Excellent input from Dr. Smith.
Clobeta GM cream is a corticosteriod used to treat a variety of skin conditions. In addition to the recommendations made by Dr. Smith- one more option to treat (not prevent) Chilblains is heather. A warm poultice made from the flowering tips of Heather (Calluna vulgaris) is a traditional treatment for chilblains.

In brief: Clobeta GM

it will help keep skin from being dry/cracking--and will treat simple secondary infections--but not a specific treatment 1.
avoid meds that constrict blood vessels-decongestants,caffeine 2. stop smoking(if you smoke) 3. wear warm clothing,avoid tight fitting shoes--insulate hand,feet,leg with proper covering 4. talk with your doctor about trying an RX called Nifedipine-relaxes blood vessels---
