Information on Frostbite

DescriptionFrostbite is damage to body tissues due to freezing. Affected parts such as finger, toes, and the nose may be severely damaged and amputation may be necessary. For milder cases, gently heat the body part with warm water as soon as possible.
Treatment PlanWatch for skin infection on the affected part. Use immune stimulants internally and antibacterial herbs externally. Soothing herbs to speed regrowth of new tissue may also be tried.
