In brief: Increase blood flow

Nitro paste topically and calcium channel blockers orally may help.
Should seek advise from a dermatologist.

I agree. Also, keeping the involved areas warm will help. One also has to consider connective tissue disease in patients with the condition.

In brief: Chilblains

Unfortunately chilblains respond poorly to treatment.
The following may be useful: topical corticosteroid cream applied accurately for a few days to relieve itch and swelling. Oral antibiotics or topical antibiotics to prevent infection.
