Give plenty of rest to the immobilsed limb. Move it as little as possible so that there is no strain.
Apply ice to the injured area. No heat treatment or massage should be given. Use an ice pack or wrap up some ice cubes in a damp towel and apply it to the injured area. You could also use anything frozen such as a packet of frozen peas. Do not massage the injured area, and don’t apply any ointments like Iodex. Compression
Wrap up the injured area with a crepe bandage if possible, or use any clean, fresh cloth available. Wrap it as tight as is comfortable. However, ask the doctor before bandaging the area. This will relieve the pain somewhat. Elevation
The injured limb should preferably be raised above the level of the heart. This could be done with the help of a pillow while sleeping.
With our headquarters in Florida, it’s unlikely that we will see too many cases of Frostbite. However, this winter has been incredibly trying for our friends up North, with blizzards and below freezing conditions for much of the winter.
Tips on Treating Frostbite
- Once you have thawed the frostbitten tissure, DO NOT allow it to freeze again. The more often tissue freezes and thaws, the deeper the damage. If the victim will soon be exposed to freezing temperatures again, wait to treat frostbite.
- NEVER rub or massage frostbitten tissue. Rubbing frostbitten tissue will result in more severe damage.
- DO NOT use any heating devices, stoves, or fires to treat frostbite. Victims cannot feel the frostbitten tissue and can be burned easily.
- In a pinch, body heat can be used to thaw frostbite. For example, placing frostbitten fingers under the arm.
