The coldest temperatures we've seen so far this season are making their way across the Upper Peninsula this week. "Last year, in particular, I saw more cases of frostbite than I have ever seen," said Dr. Daniel Reminga, podiatrist. Dr. Reminga at Northern Footcare Center in Houghton saw a record number of cases of frostbite. "Frostbite is the freezing of human tissue due to exposed areas of the cold that includes the nose, the ears, even the eyeballs, but in particular at risk are the fingers and toes," said Dr. Reminga.

With the bitter cold temperatures dropping into the 30 to 40 below zero range, frostbite can occur within just 15 minutes. "I've seen one or two cases already," reported Reminga. "I'm assuming there will be more this year based on the temps that we're seeing already." With temperatures struggling to reach double digits through the rest of the week, Dr. Reminga says it's extremely important to dress warmly in layers and, if possible, limit your time outside.
