Most frostbite cases can be treated and the patient can make a full recovery. However, that is if the person gets treated as soon as noticing the frostbite. If you have frostbite or think you may have frostbite it is important to see a doctor immediately,

Signs you have frostbite or the beginning stages of frostbite include pain in the area, red white or yeallow spots. If the area becomes numb, that is a clear sign that your frostbite could be progressing. Also, any swelling, blisters, or dark coloring of the skin could mean the frostbite has gotten to the later stages and you shoulld see a doctor immediately.
