Topical Potatoes for Chilblains (Really!)

As fall approaches, thought I’d share an odd but effective treatment for those who get chilblains as part of their EM bonus package—potatoes! Next time your chilblains flare up, slice an ordinary raw white potato and gently rub or dab the juice on your chilblains. Instant relief! It’s really magical. I carry a potato and pocket knife with me to work all winter. It doesn’t, sadly, have any immediate effect on EM flares, but I feel like they’re so related for me that anything I can do for one helps to alleviate the other.
