In brief: No ,I do not thing s

Chilblains is a medical condition that is often confused with frostbite and trench foot.
Chilblains are acral ulcers (that is, ulcers affecting the extremities) that occur when a predisposed individual is exposed to cold and humidity. A history of chilblains is suggestive of a connective tissue disease.Avoid tight fitting socks/shoes and keep your dry and warm.
