  • CHILLING NEWS ON FROSTBITE & HYPOTHERMIA: Lanakids
    Frostbite is when the fluids and cells in our bodies actually freeze. This freezing can damage our blood vessels, which can block bloodflow into the area, causing lack of oxygen and tissue damage. This can become a very serious condition if you do not warm up right away.

  • Frostbite Prevention: Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh
    Everyone is susceptible to frostbite and “frostnip,” but children are at greater risk than adults because they lose heat from their skin faster

  • What is frostbite?
    Severe frostbite can result in blisters or ulcers forming and may involve deeper tissues. As frostbite progresses, tissue death and gangrene may occur. The symptoms of frostbite may resemble other conditions and medical problems. Always consult your child's physician for a diagnosis.

  • First Aid - Frostbite
    When exposed to very cold temperatures, the skin and underlying tissues may freeze, resulting in frostbite. The areas most likely to be affected are the hands, feet, nose, and ears.
