With winter approaching, it can feel as if there’s no end to physical conditions aggravated by a drop in temperature. Chilblains, stiff muscles and rheumatic pain can all be more severe in the winter, but now soothing Balmosa cream can help keep you moving as the cold sets in.
If you are one of the 10% of Britons who suffer from chilblains, you’ll know how painful and uncomfortable they can be. Chilblains occur when a predisposed individual is exposed to extreme cold, which damages the skin’s capillaries causing redness, itching, inflammation and blisters. They usually affect the hands and feet, but can also occur on the nose and even earlobes1. They can also be a symptom of Raynaud’s, a disorder in which the small blood vessels are particularly sensitive to a change in temperature, and can cause pain, tingling and discomfort.
There are ways to help prevent chilblains, for example by keeping warm with thermal gloves and socks, and wearing loose layers to trap warm air. Regular exercise maintains good circulation, so try and move about as much as possible and stretch regularly.
If chilblains do occur, try Balmosa – one of the few creams available in the UK to help soothe pain and discomfort associated with unbroken chilblains. Easy to apply, Balmosa’s warming action stimulates dilation of the capillaries, bringing blood to the affected area, which in turn can help boost circulation.
Balmosa can also be used as an effective cream for general muscular aches and pains. It can be applied topically, on a daily basis, to help affected areas. In addition, if you suffer from chronic conditions exacerbated by the onset of the cold weather, such as lumbago and sciatica or even on-going rheumatic pain, Balmosa, can help keep you moving.
Balmosa is available over the counter at your local pharmacy or can be prescribed by your doctor.
