Question PWS link to chilblains?

My son aged 9 had to be collected from school early today as his left hand which has a PWS on it had become painful and swollen; he could not bend his fingers and said it felt as though the skin was coming off! He had not banged his hand nor been out in the cold. I took him directly to my GP who said it may be chilblains and just to keep it warm and give him Paracetamol. Has anyone heard of this complication before?

I just looked it up online and said it's generally caused by the cold or abnormal blood cells. Praying he feels better soon!!! ~Seanette

Thanks for your reply. He is much better today and has gone to school with a pair of gloves on! I have tried to contact the hospital for more information as this was not a "side effect" we were aware of. Grateful for your help.
