Get Paraffin Oil and put some on a piece of cloth and rub it on the Chilblains. Let the oil soak in and then dry them. The oil will stop them itching for a long time

Some sulphur and sweet oil is got and mixed well together. A portion of this substance is applied to the soreness every night before going to bed. This is done until the chilblains are cured.
