Easily absorbed, Balmosa cream can also be used to relieve the symptoms associated with strains, sprains, bruising, back pain and sciatica. Gentle on the skin it can be used safely in conjunction with other painkillers. Balmosa works by stimulating dilation of the capillaries to help improve circulation. This results in a sensation of warmth around the affected area which in turn relieves the pain. Many people have used Balmosa over the years to successfully help them ease the pain associated with rheumatic conditions. Balmosa for Chilblains It's common to think that chilblains are a thing of the past, but in reality the condition is still fairly widespread with about 1 in 10 of us suffering with them at some point in our lives. Not everyone who experiences having cold hands or feet will develop chilblains. Those most at risk are the young - especially those who work outdoors and the elderly when circulation becomes less efficient. What are Chilblains? Caused by an abnormal reaction to the cold, chilblains are small itchy, red swellings on the skin that can last up to 14 days. Chilblains develop on the extremities - fingers, toes, areas of the face (particularly the nose) and earlobes can all be affected. In some cases, chilblains can swell and dry out leaving the affected area prone to painful infection. Chilblains can sometimes be a symptom of circulatory conditions such as Raynaud's Syndrome where the blood supply to the extremities, usually the fingers and toes but sometimes the ears and nose is interrupted Chilblain Prevention Keep warm! This is the most important step you can take to prevent chilblains. Make sure you wear long gloves and thermal socks when it's cold outside Wear loose layers. This can be more effective at maintaining warmth than one single thick layer as the air trapped between the layers acts as an insulation system Don't forget your hat! Up to 50% of body heat is lost through the head Exercise! Regular exercise helps to improve circulation. Avoid rapid re-warming when coming in from the cold. Putting hands and feet directly onto a radiator or hot water bottle can cause pain - instead try dipping hands into warm (not hot) water and alternating with cold. Top tip: Swinging the arms through an arc of 360 degrees can help stimulate circulation through the shoulders and improve blood flow to the hands and fingers. Muscular aches and pains can be triggered by all sorts of activities including playing your favourite sport, gardening or even fooling around with the grandchildren!
