Frostbite is a serious tissue destroying disorder. It is something that is not often anticipated in relatively mild winter temperatures. The Michigan Podiatric Medical Association (MPMA) encourages everyone to stay alert and take precautions to avoid the unnecessary distress of frostbite.

“When you're out in the cold, your body works hard to stay warm by altering blood flow toward your heart and lungs,” said Dr. Jodie Sengstock, MPMA Director of Professional Relations. “This leaves your extremities – arms, legs and feet – vulnerable to cold injury, especially toes and fingers.” Depending on the severity of the exposure, frostbite can affect the skin or underlying tissue. In most cases, the area becomes numb and feels frozen. Skin will appear waxy, white, or grayish. Any exposure should be evaluated and treated by a physician.
