If I have chilblains, will i be more prone to getting it again in the future or is it a come and go disorder?

In brief: You are more prone

Chilblains are a tissue injury that occurs when a predisposed individual is exposed to cold and humidity.
The cold exposure damages capillary beds in the skin, which in turn can cause redness, itching, blisters, and inflammation. A history of chilblains is suggestive of a connective tissue disease, thus, you are more succeptible to having it again.
