Home Remedies For Frostbite
Frostbite occurs when the skin of a person's extremities (usually hands, feet and nose) has been exposed to cold temperatures for too long. If the skin is cold, pale or numb, there may be frostbite.
The extent of frostbite varies greatly, depending on the length of time a person has been exposed to the cold...the intensity of the cold, humidity and winds.. .the kinds and amount of clothing worn...a person's natural resistance to cold...as well as a his/her general state of health.
CAUTION: People with circulation problems, vascular disease, diabetes and other conditions where blood flow is compromised should do everything possible to prevent frostbite. Bundle up and stay dry!
One big problem with frostbite is that it's hard to know you have it until it's already on its way to being serious.
At some ski resorts, the ski patrol does occasional nose-and-cheek checks of skiers. Thanks to those checks, lots of mild frostbite victims are sent indoors to defrost
CAUTION: Seriously frostbitten victims should be placed under a doctor's care and/or hospitalized immediately.
Be sure the frostbite sufferer is in a warm room while waiting for medical help. If the person is conscious, give him or her a warm drink. Do not give alcoholic beverages! They can worsen the condition.
The frozen body parts must be warmed slowly. Be careful, when touching the skin, not to break the frostbite blisters. Cover the frostbitten areas with a blanket or warm (not hot) water. If it's warm, running water, make sure it flows gently over the skin. .
