I've been diagnosed with pernio/chilblains, but what I have doesn't seem to match what I'm reading here and the descriptions on the web.
I get the red nodules described, but also more widespread swelling on my toes. While cold -- specifically, below 20 degrees Fahrenheit cold -- triggers it, it continues to spread. For example, I stayed home because I had swellings on my toes and on one finger, and after 36 hours I got swelling on two other fingers, despite not going outside at all. The only cold exposure was opening the freezer, which I do every day.
The swellings don't ever itch, but they can be extremely painful. Thanks for any insight anyone can offer.
