Frostbite occurs when your body tissues freeze. Frostbite is most common on the cheeks, ears, nose, toes, and fingers.
Symptoms can include:
- White to grayish-yellow skin
- Prickly or tingling feeling
- Pain and blisters
If you develop frostbite:
- Drink warm fluids, and put on more clothes or wrap up in blankets.
- Warm the area with body heat.
- Never rub the area. This can cause further injury.
