    Swollen fingers in winters

    Most people complain of swollen fingers in winters. It is actually a medical condition called chilblains, which occurs due to a sudden warming of the skin on exposure to cold temperatures. The sudden change in temperature causes the blood vessels to expand rapidly, resulting in leakage of blood into the nearby tissues. The condition may affect any part of your body but mostly it affects hands, toes and nose. However, you can take care of swollen fingers effectively by using ingredients that are easily available in your kitchen. Below are some remedies that you use to get rid of swollen fingers this winter. Image Source : Getty
