How to treat frost bite

The first sign of frostbite is that you might lose feelings in the affected part of your body. White patches on the skin are the next obvious symptom. Watch for a white tip of the nose. The skin will appear pale and waxy. The fingers may clack together like pieces of wood in serious frost bite. You should check for frostbite if you are not sure that you can feel some part of your feet, nose or hand especially your fingers.
