Anyone got some advice for chilblains?

I have tried everything and nothing seems to help. Short of moving to a warmer climate what can I do for my chilblains? Anyone found the chilblain secret sauce?

The secret lies in the cause. The cause is not really the cold. The cause is a too rapid warming after it has got cold. In a chilblain, the circulation does not respond as quickly as the tissues warm up.

so
1. Don't let the feet get cold. Keep them warm
2. If they get cold, warm them up slowly. Do not put them in front of a heater - this is a common cause of chilblains
3. The best treatment may actaully be a lot of physical rubbing of the toe that the chilblain is on to stimulate the circulation
