First stage of frostbite: Frostnip
Frostnip is mild frostbite. It irritates the skin, leaving it red and a bit raw. The skin feels numb but the damage isn’t irreversible. Gradual warming the skin up will reverse all frostnip effects on the skin. Frostnip only affects the outer layer of the epidermis, not extending into the deeper tissues. Be sure to get out of the cold, change your clothes, and warm up to get rid of frostnip.
